For some time now the staff
has considered a variety of locations to house an improved
evidence storage facility. Options considered were
improving space at the Buildings and Grounds complex at
General Services, locating a pre-cast concrete structure at
78 Lee Street, leasing space and converting a portion of the
Old Laundry building for evidence storage. The use of the
Old Laundry building has been recommended as the preferred
alternative by the Board Facilities Committee.
The space to be utilized is
currently occupied by the non-profit group FISH and used to
distribute food and provide other services to those in
need. It is proposed to relocated the FISH program to the
Modular unit just outside the Co-operative Extension Office.
In order to lease this
property to FISH a public hearing is required.
