Albany- City commissioners promise it won't stay that way. The Public Safety Committee met with the developers, contractor, and building team members to discuss budget and contract issues.

Right now, the $14.5 million project is $50,000 over budget. "We certainly feel that if we can get five departments in one building that costs less, we can certainly get this building off the ground for the dollar amount there, and we will expect it to come in within budget," says Mayor Pro Tem and Public Safety Committee Chairman, Henry Mathis.

The lot for the new center has been cleared. Commissioner Mathis says he wants the construction contract to be signed by Monday so workers can break ground later this month. Construction should last between 16 and 18 months.
