Select board considers options for upgrading Bennington police station

February 16, 2018 06:03 AM

BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The Bennington Select Board has voted to approve a plan to upgrade the local police station's aging heating, ventilation and cooling systems.
Town Manager Stuart Hurd asked members on Monday night to authorize spending $34,500 on a proposal for the HVAC project. The Bennington Banner reports the board requested the first step of the upgrades - a design phase - should be put out for competitive bids.
The historic building that now serves as the Bennington police station is a former U.S. post office. It was also used to house federal government offices.
It's been the home of the town's police department for about 20 years, but the roof top HVAC unit first installed in the 1990s is causing problems for the building.
