The wheels are turning on a new detachment building for the Cold Lake RCMP. Cold Lake City Council agreed at their August 27th meeting to begin the process of putting the design for a replacement out to tender.

The RCMP K Divison originally came to the city looking for more space in their current building on 55th Street. City officials quickly realized an expansion would cost about the same as a brand-new building.

The whole process could take upwards of three years before it becomes a reality. The new building is expected to cost around $12 million to complete.
