BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) - Plans are moving forward for a new police headquarters in Battle Creek.

The Battle Creek Enquirer reports (https://bcene.ws/29OcgNz ) that city commissioners on Tuesday unanimously approved a $764,500 contract with Schweitzer Inc. for design services. City commissioners will later be asked to approve the second phase of the project, which includes $1.1 million.

The newspaper says most recent list of potential capital improvement projects called for spending $19 million for the police station.

The police unveiled a concept for a new headquarters in 2015. The two-story facility would be built where the department’s parking lot now sits. The current facility was built in 1970 and officials say the force and its operations have outgrown the aging building.
