New WPD Headquarters
With interior construction nearly complete and windows that were on backorder being delivered, the new Wesson Police Department headquarters building on Spring Street across from Town Hall should be open for business in July at the latest.
The interior will feature a reception area, an array of offices and conference rooms and a kitchen facility. The Town received $300,000 from the State Legislature's 2019 bond bill for the building project.
Because the Town's Public Works Department under the direction of Brad Turner handled design and construction rather than outside contractors, which are often required by funding organizations, but is not a requirement to receive the bond monies, the new building cost substantially less than the going rate for similar construction projects. When completed, Turner expects the building cost will be under budget.
