GREENWOOD, Miss. (AP) - The city of Greenwood will spend up to $3 million for renovation of the police department headquarters.

The Greenwood Commonwealth reports (https://bit.ly/ZP5scW ) the city council agreed this week to issue bonds to borrow the money.

Mayor Carolyn McAdams says the building has a number of issues, including faulty wiring, asbestos, lead-based paint and a main floor that is in danger of collapsing.

McAdams says the renovations will cost about $2.5 million. She says the rest of the money will go to relocating the department while renovations are being done.

McAdams says where the department will move has not been decided.

The present headquarters was built in 1967.
