Bainbridge council to discuss timeline on new police station
The Bainbridge Island City Council will revisit talks on a new police facility during its next meeting.
At the July 21 study session, city staff will present the next steps for deciding where to locate the new police station and what kind of facility the council would like to pursue.
"This is a major community investment, which is intended to meet the needs of the Bainbridge Island Police Department for the next 40 – 50 years," said City Manager Doug Schulze.
"We want to move forward in a way that is timely but also well-informed,” he said.
There are three options currently on the table.
The council may decide to pursue one of two designs for a stand-alone police station near city hall.
It may also vote to place the police department under the same roof as the Bainbridge Island Fire Department at the Station 21 site on Madison Avenue.
“Public safety is of the utmost importance to the City of Bainbridge Island," Schulze said.
"The city is committed to replacing the current police facility, but we would be doing a disservice to the public to move forward too quickly without completing a full assessment of all three options," he said.
The council will discuss options for the new public facility during its next regular session at 7 p.m. Monday, July 21 in city hall.
