VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) — Renovations have been delayed at the municipal building in Virginia Beach where a mass shooting happened last year.
The Virginian-Pilot reports that city officials don’t have enough money to pay for it now because of the coronavirus pandemic.
In a letter this week, the mayor of Virginia Beach asked the state legislature to consider allocating $10 million toward the renovations.
Employees who worked in the building where 12 people were killed have been working at home and in offices across the city.
The city plans to turn Building 2 into the headquarters for the police department. Plans also call for renovating several other buildings to bring former Building 2 employees back to the municipal center, so the Departments of Public Works, Public Utilities, and Planning can again offer citizens services in one place.
