Bow voters to consider options for safety complex
Officials have explored the option of building a new safety complex or renovating the existing facilities. Either way, the older fire and police stations must be brought up to building and safety codes by September 2016.
The choice will be presented in three warrant articles on the March ballot. The Board of Selectmen and the budget committee recommend passage of Warrant Article 3 – $6,796,000 to build and equip a public safety building for the fire, ambulance and rescue, police and dispatch services. The article seeks $6,766,000 in bonds and $30,000 to be raised through taxes. The building would be ready for occupancy in spring 2016.
Warrant Article 6 would cost $1,724,000 to renovate the existing police station, with $1,694,000 in bonds and $30,000 to be raised through taxes. Neither the Board of Selectmen nor the budget committee are supporting Warrant Articles 5 or 6.
