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.
