Opening for Regional Public Safety Training Center inches closer

By  | 

DOTHAN, AL. (WTVY) - The City of Dothan appears to be on the verge of finishing its $22 million public safety training center which is designed to meet local training needs, encourage regional cooperation and provide opportunities for local residents.

On Tuesday, Dothan city commission members approved an increase in funding for the center of over $100,000.

This increase will come at no cost to the city.

The project is mainly funded through the Wiregrass Foundation, with Saliba Construction Company over construction.

Barbara Alford, President of the Wiregrass Foundation, says "All that happened was because of the rain and Hurricane Michael. There's a little bit of additional work that needs to be done on the center. It's $100,000 or so in addition, but that's minor and we don't know if we'll actually have to use that money at this point."

Alford says the center is on track to open sometime in the early Fall for people to be able to move in and get situated.

An official opening date has not been set at this time.
