HORSESHOE BAY — Police this week plan to finish moving into a new state-of-the art headquarters that can withstand anything from a gun battle to a tornado.

The price tag of the new station is about $1.3 million, or nearly $200,000 less than the original estimate, Police Chief Bill Lane said.

"It came in about 30 percent under budget and architectural estimates," he added. "The price does not include street upgrades in front of the station, rock walls to separate the facility from the residential neighborhood, furnishings and landscaping."

City officials allocated funding from a budget surplus to pay for the station, Lane said.
