Called meeting to talk about police & fire

Clinton City Council's workshop discussion to center on "updates and discussions" about Police Department and Fire Department


The Clinton City Council will contiunue discussions about extensive renovations to the Police Department (former city hall) and moving the main Fire Department and, possibly, about a fire substation location.

The called meeting will be Monday, May 15, 6 pm in the PS Bailey City Council Chambers of the MS Bailey Municipal Center, 211 North Broad Street, Clinton. The meeting is open to the public.

Normally, the city council meets the first Monday of each month but lately has been scheduling a second meeting in the month for more informal discussions about on-going projects (city recreation complex, swimming pool at the YMCA, municipal center renovations and changes, etc). The City plans to keep the Police Department where it is, move the Fire Department into the current Community Building next door, and possibly relocate the substation on Springdale Drive - City Manager Tom Brooks has said he is committed to give the firefighters an alternative to "backing in" the fire truck at the substation because that is unsafe on the busy four-lane city by-pass.

The changes are financed by a City Bond.

Also on the Monday night agenda are: proclamation for May 14 - 20 as National Police Week in the City; presentation to the Clinton Police Department by the Laurens County Disabilities and Special Needs Board; recognition of "DUI Hero" officer for the most DUI arrests; and recognition of the Clinton Police Department Officer of the Year.

Updates and discussion with the Police Department, updates and discussion with the Fire Department, and project updates on Fire Station and Police Station, along with Reports and Recommendations, round out the May 15 agenda.

All Clinton City Council meetings are viewable in real-time and archives on the City's Facebook Page.
