Ansonia Mayor David Cassetti’s administration announced a new location for the city’s police department earlier this month with a concerted effort to publicize the change of plans.
The new plan calls for the outdated and overcrowded police station at 2 Elm St. to be moved to 65 Main St., a former Farrel Corp. office building.
The city had been planning to build a new police department on Olson Drive, having secured permission from voters to borrow up to $12 million for the project.
City Hall issued a press release on the changes that asked and answered its own questions. It is posted at the bottom of the article.
