The old KXAS building off Oakland Boulevard and Barnett Street is set to become a new Fort Worth Police Department Tactical Center. The city council approved continuing and completing renovations Tuesday night.

The council authorized $834,287, increasing estimated receipts and appropriations in the Crime Control Prevention District Capital Projects Fund by decreasing the same amount from the Specially Funded Project Fund. They also approved execution of an amendment for $27,500 with Elements of Architecture, Inc., for the design, bringing that total contract fee to $322,562.

In addition, council approved an execution of change order in the amount of $450,000 with Ehrlich Design Builders, Inc. for association construction. It is the second change order following the original construction contract, bringing the total fee to $2,834,478.

The second change order is necessary because of additional asbestos abatement requirements and requested additional improvements required.

At the completion of the construction associated with the police air support hangar at the Fort Worth Meacham International Airport, there were funds remaining in the Specially Funded Project Fund to defray the costs of the work on the new center.
