In other news, the Glenville and Village of Scotia officials are looking at purchasing property off Swaggertown Road to house a joint police station. Scotia Mayor Kris Kastberg said the two municipalities are applying for a state grant that will allow for a study on the effects of a shared police station.
"Right now our police building is shared with our town court and other government offices. We have a definite interest in freeing up space," said Kastberg.
Looking into a combined police headquarters is just the latest step being taken by Scotia and Glenville in an effort to work together on sharing services with each other and the county. Both municipalities are looking for ways to save energy and costs for taxpayers.
