The Police Building Review Committee will hold two public information meetings on Saturday, April 21 so residents can get more information on the new proposed police station in Smyrna and the referendum.
Residents will be able to vote on the proposed police station in the form of a referendum in the Monday, April 30 town election; Town Council will make the final decision. The new proposed 26,900 square foot facility, if approved by council, would be on the existing site of the current police department on Glenwood Avenue. It could cost up to $4.9 million with a possible tax increase of 4.5 cents per $100 of assessed value, or roughly $45 a year for a home with an assessed value of $100,000.
Not only can residents attend meetings at John Bassett Moore Intermediate School on April 21 at 9 a.m. or 1 p.m. regarding the proposed facility, but they can also attend an open house from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the current Smyrna Police Department at 325 W. Glenwood Avenue.
