Dean Quayle, however, believes it was a good decision. One of four municipal council candidates running for two council seats. On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Monday, Quayle said he also supports the additional money spent to receive a LEED certification for energy efficiency.Quayle said the certification will take some time to realize if it saves the city money and, if so, how much money is saved. “I know it’s done a very good thing for the city in that the Public Works department is now able to consolidate all into one location instead of being farmed out in various buildings throughout the city,” Quayle said. “To me it’s been a positive thing.”It’s over with. It’s done. It’s paid for, the offices are nice, they’re certainly not excessive by any means. I think it’s going to serve the city in a positive role for many, many years.”Quayle says it has also provided an opportunity for the library to expand into the old city hall space and the Bridgerland Literacy Center has much more room than it had in the past. Quayle has been on the municipal council since June when he was picked by the current council to replace former city councilman Steve Thompson who left office before his term expired.
