City of Beaver Dam Ponders Building A New Police Station Where YMCA Was Once Located

If the Beaver Dam Police Department had its way they would demolish the former YMCA building and replace it with a brand new station. The city recently purchased the building but there are differences of opinion on how they should proceed on the site. After a presentation last night to the Operations Committee, that showed other new and refurbished police facilities in the state, Chief Dale Boldt said a contractor for one of the projects looked at the old YMCA building and told him while he liked the site he didn’t feel renovating it would be cost effective. A study is being done right now to determine whether building new or renovating will be the best option for the city.
