A joint meeting is being held in Bethel tonight so three government panels can hear about a revised Police Station proposal.  Residents rejected a $14.1 million plan in December to move and expand the police station.  First Selectman Matt Knickerbocker says the Board of Selectmen, Board of Finance and Public Site & Building Commission will hear the same presentation.

 

More than $900,000 has been cut in the latest proposal for a new police station at Judd Avenue and Dodgingtown Road.  

 

This has taken some time because the General Assembly was considering a new law that would have mandated regional dispatch centers.  That legislative proposal did not pass.  The committee went back to work in June with the architects to find a way to lower the cost of the project. 

 

Tonight's meeting is at 7pm in the Municipal Center.
