Newtown Police Station project on schedule, on budget in preliminary phases

The Newtown Police station project is so far on time and on budget.  The Newtown Bee reports that some site development expenses will be lower than anticipated, including by moving the driveway closer to the building.  Rock ledges on the property prompted the move, saving several hundred thousand dollars.  An early demolition package could lead to more inside on structural or other issues.  The Bee reports that a planned high ceiling in the entry has been taken off the table because the roof line would have had to be sealed.  The 1980's former Taunton Press building’s original fire mains are in good shape.  Some options on the secondary priority list could be considered as the project gets going, including a driveway to Ethan Allen Road.
