SAUK RAPIDS – Our mild winter has allowed construction of the Sauk Rapids Government Center to get ahead of schedule, and under budget.

Mayor Dave Saunders says city employees could be moving into their new offices in just a few months.

Ground was broken on the site in May of last year.  It will house the City Hall, Police Headquarters, and a Community Center.  It’s being built at the corner of Summit Avenue and 2nd Street – adjacent to the Public Works Facility.

City staff and the police department have been without a permanent home for about a year now, after the city sold the former city hall and land to Semper Development, which built a new Walgreens Store.
