Precision Planning Inc., the design firm selected for the project, also designed the Lilburn City Hall - Library building which was completed in 2016.
The new Lilburn Police Department and Municipal Court building is a budgeted project that is 100% funded through SPLOST. The Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax is a one-cent sales tax approved by voters to be used for special projects, such as police and fire stations.
