The City Council has approved $90 million in capital improvements, including construction of a new police station.
City Manager William Little said improvements, approved unanimously Tuesday, are needed to accommodate the city's growth. The city of 100,000 is expected to grow by as much as 12% in five years.
In addition to the $12-million police building, the city will spend $34 million in the next five years on road improvements.
The new police station will be built at 637 W. Struck Ave., where the city now stores vehicles and other equipment. Little said an architect and contractor will be selected later this month and construction should begin late this year.
