Armory demolition moves forward using federal money By Geoff Dornan Nevada Appeal September 14, 2008Passersby watched this week as three buildings on the site of the old Nevada National Guard Armory on south Carson Street were turned into rubble.
Project Coordinator Ken Scarbrough of the Public Works Board said that and two other demolition projects were put on hold when funding to do the work was reverted as part of the state's budget cuts. But while the other two are state projects, the armory is half federal and half state. He said the federal match money for the armory project was still available so they started by taking down 15 smaller buildings and sheds in the back of the property in June.
But with tough economic times, bids came in as much as 40 percent of what they would have two years ago, so there was money left over. Scarbrough said it was money that would revert to the federal government if the state didn't use it by Sept. 30, the end of the federal fiscal year.
