Middleboro: Fate of police station rests with town voters next June

A renovation of the 200-year-old police station in Middleboro will be up to town voters next spring.

Town Meeting and the town election, both in June, will ask residents to borrow more than $10 million to expand and overhaul the building through a Proposition 2 1/2 override.

Work would include additional offices, locker rooms, an evidence area, meeting and equipment rooms, a gym, and a secure entrance behind the building.

Last week, Middleboro selectmen agreed to spend five-thousand dollars on a lease option for a vacant shop that would become temporary quarters for police.
