Sedona City Council made a unanimous decision to approve a $25,000 contract with a $42,000 cap with a third-party dome collapse investigator during its meeting Tuesday, Sept. 25.

Workers collect twisted rebar Wednesday, Sept. 26, from what’s left of the dome at Barbara Antonsen Memorial Park in West Sedona. The dome structure collapsed Aug. 14, ceasing all work on the project until a investigation into the cause is completed. The Sedona City Council made a unanimous decision at its Tuesday, Sept. 25, meeting to approve a contract with a third-party investigator to find out details of why the dome fell.The approval means work will begin on a detailed investigation into the Aug. 14 collapse of the dome structure at Barbara Antonsen Memorial Park, with a full report on the cause of that collapse expected in November.

Assistant Public Works Director Andy Dickey explained the contract with Starling, Madison and Loftquist, Inc. during the meeting. All progress on the long-standing Posse Grounds Park project ceased following the collapse. No one was injured as a result of the incident. Debris removal is currently underway at the site.

“The initial portion of the contract, the site investigation, was conducted between Sept. 19 and Sept. 24,” Dickey said. “Analysis will begin after approval of the contract and is expected to be complete within the next few weeks.”

Staff will make another presentation to council at its Tuesday, Nov. 13, meeting. Dickey said the investigation will provide details into the dome collapse.
