City officials gathered Tuesday morning to break ground on the new Public Safety Center in Corinth. The facility will become the new home of the Corinth Police Department and Lake Cities Fire Department.
Mayor Heidemann and council members kicked off the ceremony by expounding on the project impact to the community. “We are extremely pleased with the process and outcome of the plans for the new joint facility,” expressed Councilman Don Glockel. “A dedicated committee of city employees, council members, and construction and architect firms have been creating this vision for over a year now and look forward to the benefits of the Corinth Police Department and Lake Cities Fire Department being in a common space where they can share resources. The four Lake Cities have been working together since the conception of the fire department in 1959 and it is my hope and dream that we continue to service our residents as a united body.”
Also in attendance were Corinth Councilmen Joe Harrison, Lowell Johnson, Scott Garber, and Don Glockel, Mayor of Hickory Creek Lynn Clark, Mayor Pro-Tem of Shady Shores Paula Woolworth, Mayor of Lake Dallas Michael Barnhart, City Manager Bob Hart, Director of Finance Lee Ann Bunselmeyer, Fire Chief Curtis Birt, Assistant Chief of Police Greg Wilkerson, and representatives from Sedalco Construction and Eikon Consulting Group.
The remodeling of the existing 32,000 square-foot building and the addition of an 11,820 square-foot fire station are expected to be completed in the spring of 2018.
