The council has been working towards the construction of a Public Safety Building for the past several years, including a scoping survey, formation of the Public Safety Building Committee, open houses, and other meetings and discussions.
They have approved a contract with Big-D and JRCA Architects for the design and construction of the new single-story, 25,000-square-foot public safety building, which is being built adjacent to the existing facility.
Mayor Berube, our city council, our outstanding police department, Senator Johnson, Representative Wilcox, former mayors and council members, former police chiefs, city employees, Northview Fire, representatives from Big-D Construction and JRCA Architects, along with members of our community joined us on July 21, 2022 in celebration of our future Public Safety Building.
“This is something that’s been needed in our city for an extremely long period of time and is finally coming to fruition,” Mayor Berube said during the event.
The new building will meet the necessary regulations and offer a higher level of security for our Police Department, Justice Court, Animal Control, and Code Enforcement officers.
“I think the process has been very thorough and methodical. We are now at a point where we have made all the big decisions, and now, the project will move very quickly,” said Jon Call, city manager/attorney.
The project is set to be completed in August 2023.
