MERRIMAC — The possibility of a new police station is inching closer as the town will soon hire an architect to design the new building. At the same time, the town has hired Florida-based consulting firm NV5 to oversee any possible project and protect the town’s investment.
The news comes about six months after voters at Town Meeting approved spending $500,000 to cover the design and engineering costs for a new police station.
Merrimac police Chief Eric Shears said three architectural firms submitted bids by Wednesday’s 4 p.m. deadline. Over the next few weeks, the firms will be interviewed and the Public Safety Building Committee will meet to recommend a finalist to the Board of Selectmen. (Dave Rogers — Aug. 30, 2018. — Read More)
