WAVELAND, Miss. (AP) - The city of Waveland and a bond company representing an original construction team have agreed on a list of repairs that could get construction of a new police station back on track.

Construction was halted in 2012 due to a dispute between the city and the contractor.

City Attorney Gary Yarborough says the repair package has been sent to FEMA for approval.

The city’s police station was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

Soon after construction began, deficiencies were discovered and the city filed a lawsuit in Hancock County Circuit Court, stalling the project indefinitely. Yarborough says the agreement should allow work to resume.

He says it’s unclear if the city will have to re-bid the project.

The one-story will be built to withstand 250 mile-per-hour winds and storm surge.
