Council approves $1.7 million budget for Sask Crime Reduction office

The second floor of the Lloydminster RCMP building is to be renovated to make way for the Saskatchewan Crime Reduction Unit after Lloydminster City Council gave its support for a $1.7 million budget.

Monday’s council meeting decided that $1,254,385, excluding GST, will go to Craftex Builders to deliver the renos and $300,000 to the RCMP renovation for the Saskatchewan Crime Reduction Unit project with a contingency of $89,000.

City administration noted that the extra $300,000 is to account for cost increases in the last two years since the Alberta Alert office was completed.

The 911 call centre will be getting a new space as part of the renos. Council documents list the build to include office space, a bullpen, lunchroom, meeting rooms, and storage.
