Sandown OKs Test Pits for Police Station

SANDOWN – Police chief Joe Gordon received approval from the board of selectmen to have test pits dug on town land slated for future construction of a police station.

If voters approve one more addition to the savings account for a new station in March, construction can begin and Gordon is looking to avert any future issues by gathering site information early.
Gordon wants to learn where there is ledge and where the building would best be located.
The chief noted his desire to get the station moving this coming year, something that he and many others have said is a long overdue build.
Last Town Meeting saw voters approve a $200,000 installment for the station, the fourth annual installment. With a similar sum in March, Gordon is confident the funding will be complete.
The board of selectmen was amenable to the site investigations, but selectman Hans Nicolaisen wanted it to be clear to the contractor offering to handle the work, Dube Plus of Hampstead, that the decision as to whom the project will ultimately go to has not been made. Gordon said there was no cost to the work and Dube Plus knew the project would go to bid, but that the company was always willing to help Gordon for the good of the town.
