What happens if the Council decides to put this project on hold?

If the Council puts the project on hold, the City will not advertise for construction bids in April, as we currently plan. In addition:  

  • The project will be delayed and the Police and Court functions will continue in their current undersized and inadequate locations. If a new site is sought, it will likely be at least three and maybe five or more years until acquisition is completed and a project can be designed, permitted and constructed.  
  • The project will likely become more expensive as we will delay the project. 
  • There are other financial and staffing implications which will depend on the length of the delay and the eventual decision.
