Public Site & Building Commission: Police Station Project Moving Forward
Efforts to build the new police station continue to move forward as the Request For Proposal (RFP) solicitation phase will culminate with all bids due on Tuesday, March 8 at 2 p.m. The PS&BC will then gather all of the submitted project architect bids and construction manager bids, and review and evaluate proposals from each firm before working with the Police Commission, Board of Finance, and Board of Selectmen to establish a timeline for the project from that point. One the respective firms are chosen, the design phase will begin with renderings being submitted for feedback and approval.
The town-supported budget for the project is $13.5MM, which was approved by voters in December, 2015. The goal is to break ground no later than the spring of 2017. For more information on the project, continue to check Bethel’s town website, and the Bethel Democrats’ website for periodic updates moving forward.
