College Station Council Supports Revised Plans For New Police Headquarters

The College Station city council voted unanimously Thursday to approve the final design concept for the new police headquarters at Krenek Tap and Dartmouth.

The approval came on the third attempt by city staff and the city’s consultant.

Police chief Scott McCollum told the council “We heard you loud and clear in previous council meetings that you did not want this to take up any more time.”

Councilman Bob Brick added “I wish that I had seen this in an earlier iteration of this process and I think we would have been further down the line.”

The council’s vote also included the decision to select who will do the construction by the CMAR process, which stands for construction manager at risk. Mayor Karl Mooney and James Benham applauded the change of direction by city staff.

The council was told as many as nine companies might bid on the project.

The council also learned the project is $500,000 dollars over its $28 million dollar budget.
