Referendum tomorrow in Bethel on outfitting police station firing range

A referendum is set for tomorrow in Bethel on outfitting the police station firing range.  Residents are being asked for approval to spend up to $1.4 million to purchase and install equipment.  The money would come from Fund Balance. The price tag includes funding for contingency and escalation costs.  The budget would be reduced by at least 160-thousand dollars if the town can lock in a purchase order with Action Target before August 1st. The new police headquarters on Judd Avenue was constructed several years ago, but the range doesn't have the specialized heating, ventilation and air conditioning system needed to filter out lead dust associated with the range.  The firing range equipment was once estimated between $600,000 and $700,000, but there's been a large cost increase for a specific piece of HVAC equipment and for general construction costs.
