SALT LAKE CITY - Salt Lake City may try yet again to pass a bond that would pay for a new police and fire headquarters.

Voter rejected a proposal two years ago by 263 votes. But the Salt Lake Tribune reports city officials are discussing a new plan that would include a "bare bones" public safety building.

The cost this time around is projected at $100 million. That's significantly less than the $192 million bond issue voters defeated in 2007.

The current building is more than 50 years old and is falling apart, with crumbling walls, outdated plumbing and wiring, and a leaking roof.

The bond could appear on the November ballot.
