"We are not raising taxes to build this building," Kim said. "We can do this."
Despite the official's desire to have the bond funds issued, Kim said they would put the project to bid in September, with or without the city council's bond fund approval.
The sooner they can get the project to bid the less expensive materials will be, Kim said.
Kim said he would ask Commissioner Ken Ivins to place a funding item on the commissioner of finance's agenda at a future council meeting.
Kim said city residents are encouraged to view the city's police headquarters to see the facility first-hand and gauge for themselves if the facility needs to be updated. To schedule a tour of the headquarters, visit saratogapolice.org or call 587-3550, ext. 513.""
