Resolution No. 02-2019.  A Resolution authorizing the City Manager to enter into a contract by and 
between the City of Monroe and KZF Architects for professional design services for a new police 
facility.

Background.   This represents a new proposal by KZF Architects in the amount of $49,000, plus 
reimbursable expenses  for schematic design services for a new police station at the former IGA 
site. Schematic design is necessary prior to proceeding to full building set documentation of the 
facility. Schematic design will include the preliminary work include validation of the conceptual 
site plan and further develop the programming that was also outlined previously for the building.  
We plan to use typical AIA contractual documents, which is also being proposed to be authorized to 
finalized and signed.  The documents include negotiation of the next stages of the development as 
well to create final construction documents for the project.  It is recommended that this be 
adopted as an emergency on its second reading.  The agreement will set the next steps for the 
design and development of a new Police  Facility as  previously directed  by Council  and  funded  
through  the  additional  income  tax approved by voters in 2017.

Glad to see the former IGA getting developed into a productive community resource. 

I drove by the city building this morning... the parking lots are totally full of city worker and police cars. They need to move out to make way for the next hundred people the city hires to run our growing metropolis.

Mark Shoemaker of KZF Design presented the draft schematic design for the new police facility at 
601 South Main Street.  A sally port has been incorporated, the parking has been moved further away 
from the building, and it will provide for a community room.  In addition, the parking area for the 
cruisers and employees will be in a secure area.

Mr. Clark asked what the cost of an indoor shooting range is and Mr. Shoemaker estimated it to
be $500,000.

Mr. Brock advised that the estimated costs for renovation, including the purchase of the property, 
are under what they thought they would need to obtain bonds for.  The bond numbers and revenue will 
be re-evaluated.  He added that the design phase will be completed later this year to allow for 
bidding in the fall, which is a good time to bid this type of work.

Mr. Clark asked if contact has been made with the tenant located where the sally port* will be 
installed.  Mr. Brock replied that contact has been made and the tenant will be letting him know
their intentions.

*A sally port is a secure, controlled entryway to a fortification or prison. The entrance is usually protected by some means, such as a fixed wall on the outside, parallel to the door—which must be circumvented to enter and prevents direct enemy fire from a distance. Wikipedia

This is great news. I fully support the utilization of a building that has been vacant for over a decade.
This is money well spent. And I will purchase bonds if they are offered.
