New Citrus Heights city hall dedication draws crowd for ‘momentous occasion’

Several hundred residents, regional leaders, and city staff gathered outside the newly completed city hall Thursday morning for an official dedication ceremony and tours of the 35,000-square-feet building.

“In a few months Citrus Heights will be celebrating its 20th anniversary and I really think we did it right,” said outgoing City Manager Henry Tingle, who is credited with enabling the city to purchase the $22 million hall with no debt. “We took our time, we set our priorities, and we followed our strategic plan to the tee — and this is the results of it.”
