With a public dedication set for September for the town of Whitman’s first major ‘new building’ in the last 25 years, town officials are beginning to look at what’s next for building projects in town, now that the Whitman Police Department is fully functional out of their new police station on Essex Street
Town Administrator Frank Lynam states a long-range facility study done a few years back will help.
“Needs that still exist, and needs that are actually very critical, are the public works facility and the council on aging,” stated Lynam. “Public works in particular because the buildings they are operating out of are a steel building constructed in the 70s and a block building constructed in the 20s, and these facilities are grossly inadequate.”
Lynam states that, unfortunately, the high cost for projects like these will force the town to plan over a long period of time in order to work them into the capital budget.
“We should be looking at building facilities and capital plans over ten years and longer,” stated Lynam. “I would guess that it would be a few years at least until we are prepared to take on another the project,” stated Lynam.
Lynam states the police officers moved into their new station at 20 Essex Street last Monday. Town officials had initially hoped for the 16-thousand square foot, two-story building to be finished by April.
The building will be dedicated in a ceremony on September 11th.
