Tooele County Relief Services Director Karen Kuipers, and Tooele County Food Bank Director Lori Trujillo, have prepared a plan to provide for continuation of their departments' services - even if the county budget ax falls on their programs.

Tooele County Relief Services Director Karen Kuipers, and Tooele County Food Bank Director Lori Trujillo, have prepared a plan to provide for continuation of their departments' services - even if the county budget ax falls on their programs.
"I have been told by a commissioner that it would be prudent for relief services and the food bank to look for another mechanism to support us," said Kuipers at a Monday meeting of the Tooele Valley Rotary Club. While no decision has been made on the fate of relief services and the food bank, Kuipers and Trujillo unveiled their proposed plan to continue serving financially-strapped county families at the rotary club meeting. Kuipers and Trujillo propose the formation of a new non-profit organization that will take over the operation of relief services and the food bank. The new organization will consist of representatives from a broad spectrum of the community and administer the two programs using grant money and local donations, according to Kuipers. "If we can use the existing facilities, the new organization could raise money from grants and local donations to cover the costs of providing services," said Kuipers.

Tooele County Relief Services Coordinator Karen Kuipers talks about the future plans for the Community Resource Center at an open house Tuesday night at the Emergency Management Building. Relief services needs more space for storage and private offices for consultation with clients, according to Karen Kuipers, Tooele County Relief Services coordinator. She said she started thinking about the building next door, where Grinders is now located, long before Grinders moved in. "The property was owned by the bank and it sat empty for two years and it was empty when we applied for the grant," said Kuipers. When Kuipers took a look at the adjacent building and realized that it had locker rooms, showers, and a hook up for a washer and dryer, those facilities seemed like a good bonus. "They weren't the reason we wanted the building," said Kuipers. "But they were already there and the idea was to have a place where people could clean up and get ready for a job interview." Kuipers emphasized that the showers and laundry facilities were meant to be used only for day use by people living in their cars or in the canyons. "We never intended for the facility to be a homeless shelter for overnight use," said Kuipers. With the adjacent building out of the picture, the county started to look at other options, Kuipers said. An elevator installed in the current building would make the mezzanine and basement accessible, said Kuipers. However, the estimates to install an elevator came back at $200,000. "That seemed like a big expense for 5,000 square feet of space," said Kuipers. Using the basement and mezzanine for anything other than storage would also require installing exits directly to the outdoors to meet fire codes, according to Kuipers. The county also looked at using the old county jail, but remodeling a building with concrete walls between jail cells also proved to be expensive, Kuipers said. The former Anytime Fitness Center at 310 South Main Street, which has been empty for years, was also considered. Initially the Liddiard's building was priced too high, said Kuipers. "We have been working with the owners of the building and they have come up with an offer that is within the amount provided by the grant that will give us 21,000 square feet of space, all on the ground floor," Kuipers said. "The verbiage of the contract states that the state will closely monitor progress towards project milestone deadlines, and may invoke the right to terminate the contract on the basis that it cannot be completed within the contract time limits," said Kuipers.
