EDMOND — Work progresses Wednesday on the city’s new 70,000 square foot Public Safety Center at the southeast corner of First Street and Littler Avenue in downtown Edmond. As facility construction has continued, a number of issues have been dealt with or need to be dealt with, according to information presented during Monday’s City Council meeting. They include addition of a basement sub grade to get workers out of the mud, addition of waterproofing to underneath the slab and outside basement walls and redesign of the entrance to enhance security and an upgrade in security glass in the jail due to manufacturer warranty issues. The issues were part of a $159,527.39 change order approved by council members; Frankfurt Short Bruza is picking up the tab for the entrance redesign cost, according to the agenda. Timberlake Construction is the contractor. The facility is scheduled to open in 2015.
