WARNER ROBINS -- The Warner Robins law enforcement center ultimately cost $9.82 million, according to chief finance officer Bill Harte.

Harte presented the updated figure to the Redevelopment Agency board Monday. He said about $640,000 of that total is in unpaid invoices, but it looks like about $22,000 will be left over.

Chief Brett Evans would like to use the leftover funds for TVs to be used as monitors throughout the facility, Harte said. Harte asked him to hold off until all the bills have been paid.

The law enforcement center was the city’s largest project in recent history. It primarily was funded with $9.45 million earmarked in the 2006 and 2012 special purpose local option sales taxes. Interest totaling $115,000 from the 2006 SPLOST was shifted to the project, and City Council transferred $275,000 to the project in March. RDA Executive Director Gary Lee previously said there likely would be leftover funds from council’s contribution that would return to city coffers.

The building was turned over to the police department April 30, and Lee said the full force has relocated.
