An agreement on the location for the new public safety building is stalling the project.
Barnwell City Council was scheduled to vote on approval of a location for the new home of the police and fire departments so the city could negotiate a price with the landowner. They were also supposed to review a draft AIA (American Institute of Architects agreement with the public safety building architect. However, council tabled action on both items at the Aug. 7 meeting.
“Council could not get a consensus on the location,” said City Administrator John Zawacki.
