Council Looking at Previous Info with Fresh Eyes

Shelburne | by Phil DeLand  

Shelburne Staff is putting together a report of previous SPS accommodation information for council.

Shelburne Council is looking at some old options with fresh eyes.

At Council last night, they took another look at options for Shelburne Police to stay in town, and what they would need for space.

Council members voted to direct staff to review all former space planning considerations previously developed by the Police Accommodation Sub-Committee.

In addition, they asked staff to provide a summary of the information and if the Shelburne Police Service's accomodation needs could be met through renovation and expansion -- without exceeding $3-million.

Mayor Wade Mills, who put the recommendation forward, says he felt it was important to include some sort of limit.

Previous sub-committees looked into the options of renovation, expansion or building new without a suggested budget.

Mills likened that to going to a car dealership and looking for a car with all the options you want before getting the price tag.

He believes the $3-million limit is what the town could reasonably borrow, without putting too much of a constraint on the debt.
