Lynnwood City Council set March 13 to discuss Community Justice Center construction cost increase

During its March 13 business meeting, the Lynnwood City Council is scheduled to discuss increasing construction costs for the Community Justice Center and read a proclamation about Women’s History Month. 

At its work session on March 6, the council heard about unexpected costs associated with the ongoing construction of the center.
