Mendon Votes For New Police Station

By MyFM's Rick Michaels - A new police station in Mendon was approved by voters during the Annual Town Election yesterday.  By a 2-1 margin, Mendon residents approved the construction of a new Police Station at the site of the existing Fire Station building on Main Street.  The total price tag is just under five-million dollars.  However, the impact on taxpayers will be minimal.  That’s because the town is dropping some debt at this time.  Combined with the ability to use money under the Community Preservation Act leading members of the Police Station Building Committee to recommend the more expensive option which will allow space for future expansion.  Meanwhile, residents had two-contested races to decide.  For Highway Surveyor Alan Tetrealt won re-election and will serve for another three-years.  He was being challenged by Christopher Strom.  And for Water Commissioner, Allan Kent retained his seat, winning a three-year term by defeating two-challengers, Patrick Luck and Matthew O’Brien.
