Missing ceiling tiles, exposed wires and female officers' lockers housed in a toilet stall are among the laundry list of problems a renovation to the Monroe Police Department is meant to address.
A $500,000 state grant was secured in 2002, but the project never got off the ground. Now the cost has been inflated by $750,000 and has an estimated $4.1 million price tag.
First Selectman Steve Vavrek listed the project among his priorities during the last budget process. A joint meeting on the needed renovations with the Town Council, Board of Finance, Board of Education, Planning & Zoning Commission and Police Commission is scheduled for Monday, June 13.
The meeting will be in the Council Chambers of Monroe Town Hall at 7 p.m., according to the press release by the First Selectman's Office.
Capt. Michael Flick will make a presentation. The public is invited to attend, but there will be no public comment session during the meeting.
