The Project Manager for a new Public Safety Building says work on the facility should get underway on July 15.

Lt. Mark Munari of the Cheyenne Police Department says the first stage will be remediation work on the former Dinneen's Car Dealership building, which will involve removal of materials from the building. Munari says the next step will be demolition of parts of the building which are to be replaced, followed by the start of construction work at the site, which he says should get underway by late August.

Munari says if all goes as planned the new facility should be ready by the end of 2015. Laramie County voters in 2012 approved spending $25 million in sixth penny sales tax revenues for a facility to house the Cheyenne Police Department as well as Cheyenne Fire and Rescue and other emergency responders.

The Cheyenne City Council chose the former dealership building as the location for the new facility, in part because part of the existing structure can be incorporated into the new facility.
