Kaysen Says Council May Revisit Dinneen’s Purchase

Former Dinneen’s Car Dealership (Doug Randall/TSM)

Cheyenne Mayor Rick Kaysen says the city is looking at a number of possible sites for a new Public Safety Building.

He says that could include further consideration of a purchase of the former Dinneen’s Car Dealership in downtown Cheyenne. The city council rejected that purchase Monday on a 5-5 tie vote, in large part because the purchase price the city had negotiated with the Dineen family for the purchase of the property was about 20 percent above the appraised value. Kaysen says the possibility of further negotiations with the family on a purchase remains open.

Kaysen says another possible location for the building could be city owned property in the area of Windmill and Dell range which had been at one time proposed as the site of a city recreation center. The center has twice been rejected by local voters for funding under the sixth-penny sales tax.

Kaysen says that he would prefer a downtown location for the building, but concedes that may not be possible. The $25 million dollar Public Safety Building would house the  Cheyenne Police Department as well as the Cheyenne Fire and Rescue Department administration and other local emergency responders.
