Mayor Coletta presented Chief Howell with a certificate of recognition expressing the Town Council’s gratitude for Chief Howell’s leadership and perseverance throughout the planning and construction of the project.

The 14,000 sq. ft. facility is a modern, one-story, slab-on-grade building containing truck storage, a museum, meeting space, and multiple offices. It offers the department room for expansion as they serve the community for years to come.
