PRESS RELEASE June 19 2012
NEW CAMPTON TOWN FACILITY
The Board of Selectmen has scheduled a public hearing at the Campton Historical Society on Monday, June 25th at 7 p.m. to bring the citizens of Campton up-to-date on the construction progress and changes in the town building project.
Upon review of departmental needs, the Board has made a decision to re-allocate current space at the present Police Department facility and re-allocate the space that was originally proposed for the Tax Collector/Town Clerk office in the new facility.
The Selectmen’s decision does several things for the Town of Campton:
· Will save between $500,000 to $1,000,000 for future construction costs
· Will bring the Police Department into compliance with interrogation privacy requirements especially for the protection of juveniles
· Will accomplish the goal of having all of the Town Departments in adequate facilities all on one campus.
The Board realizes that its decision may not be popular with all. But, looking to the future, it makes good business sense and is the best plan of action for the Town of Campton with regards to its facility requirements for the near future.
There will also be a groundbreaking ceremony at the site of the new town facility on Gearty Way behind the Police Department at 6 p.m. on Monday, June 25th.
