Arroyo Grande Police officers say they need a new police station, and the community seems to agree. On the agenda for tomorrow night's city council meeting is a bond measure that police want to add to the June ballot.
Chief of Police Steven Annibali says the station needs repairs, and is too small. He conducted a survey in the community, and 86-percent of ther respondants said they think it's a good time to build. Eighty-two percent said they would be willing to help fund the project.
Annibali says the economy has driven down building prices. "We want to build it now when the time is right," Annibali said. "We're going to have to build a police station at some time. This building has seen its life. If we can build it now, it would save a significant amount of taxpayer money."
The project is estimated to cost just under $6 million. The city council meeting is Tuesday night at 7 p.m.
