Lubbock City Council Approves Bonds for Lubbock Police Department Facilities Project

Lubbock PoliceLubbock City Council held a regular meeting on Monday night.  They voted on a variety of issues including the $60 million public safety improvement project.

The project looks to create a new police headquarters.  It will include a new police headquarters in downtown Lubbock, three community policing stations in various locations around the city, a new police property room and a new building for municipal court building.  The funding will occur in two different phases.  The first $10,000 will cover property acquisition and initial expenses.  The remaining $50,000 will cover construction costs.

The council had considered three funding options including, pay as you go,  general obligation bonds, which require approval by voters and certificates of obligation which do not require voter approval.

On a split 4-3 vote, the council approved moving forward with the project without voter approval, using certificates of obligation.
