City of Temple reaches settlement for police headquarters lawsuit

TEMPLE, TX (KXXV) -

The city of Temple have reached a settlement over construction problems at the police headquarters. The city was able to agree on a settlement of $7.25 million.

The suit was filed in 2010 against Baird Williams Construction, Ltd., Brinkley Sargent Architects, Inc. and a number of other companies.

The new police headquarters building was completed in September 2005, but the city faced higher than anticipated maintenance and operating costs, along with discovering mold in late 2009.

The city manager, David Blackburn, said, "The good news here is all of the costs associated with renovating and rehabilitating the facility have been recovered with the settlement, which is what the city was seeking to begin with. It was simply to recoup those costs and not have any additional cost."

Temple had to borrow money to cover the $5 million renovations. The settlement will reimburse the city for renovation costs, attorney fees, and court fees.
