New Public Safety Complex for Mansfield?

The town is eyeing a joint police and fire department complex.

New Public Safety Complex for Mansfield?
Mansfield's public safety departments may have outgrown their shells. The town may be considering constructing a new facility to house its fire and police departments, reports The Sun Chronicle.

Mansfield Public Works Director Lee Azinheira told the Chronicle that the town may tear down its public works garage on Route 106 after a new garage is built at another location. Then, they would construct a new joint public safety facility on the vacant lot for both the police and fire departments. 

The North Main Street fire station was built in 1930 and, over the past 80 years, the station and its equipment have grown - making space tight in the facility.
