Council approves PAL building renovation

The city closed down the PAL Youth Center last spring, giving the group two weeks to move out.


The Molalla City Council Wednesday voted to set aside $5,000 to get rid of mold in the city-owned PAL building before the wet winter weather sets in. Due to the mold issues, the city last March closed the building used for the Molalla Youth Center by PAL (Police Activities League), a self-sustained nonprofit organization, giving the youth center 14 days to get out of the building.

The council Wednesday discussed the mitigation requirements, estimated to cost about $1,800 and another $3,000 for drainage improvements.

After some discussion, the council decided to get the assessment done by a certified firm and work done on the building within the next three weeks while it is still dry.

“We need to fix it now, not wait until it’s soaked again,” said Councilor Dennis Wise.

The council decided not to spend in excess of $5,000 having the work assessed and mitigation done within the next three weeks. No decisions have been made as to what the building will be used for in the future.
