A construction bid for additions to Lee’s Summit Police Department headquarters is expected to be accepted by the City Council this week.
A bid of $6,988,373 by Titan Built LLC has been recommended to the council by city staff. It was on the Finance Committee agenda for Feb. 20, after the Lee’s Summit Journal deadline for its Wednesday Edition, and on the council’s consent agenda for Feb. 21.
Titan was one of six companies making bids for the project.
Voters approved borrowing money for addition as part of a package of general obligation bond issues in 2010.
The improvements will include an indoor firing range, training center and expanded detention faculty.
The project will include about 28,000 square feet of new construction and 3,500 square feet of renovation to the detention area.
Also on the council’s Feb. 21 agenda is a public hearing on Downtown Design Standards, which are an amendment to the city’s Unified Development Code proposed by Downtown Lee’s Summit Main Street.
The codes are intended to require new construction in the downtown core to be compatible in appearance with surrounding structures, particularly historic buildings. It covers outside materials, setbacks and other requirements which will be mandatory. The Lee’s Summit Planning Commission voted unanimously to recommend approval of the changes.
