Council obliged Monday night, approving a resolution for a deign that would meet the departmentís anticipated needs for 2040. The town plans to build a new police station at the corner of Kendrick Lane and Monroe Avenue. The chosen plan would cost about $7.78million and include a main building to house personnel and a 911 center and a support building for vehicle and evidence storage. Both buildings would meet the departmentís needs to keep up with expected growth and development in the community. The 4-2 vote came after a failed effort to get the matter brought back to a work session over concerns about how to pay for it.
