The St. Helens City Council is scheduled today to receive a presentation during its work session updating the development of a public safety facility that would replace the city's aging police station.
The council could make a decision at its evening meeting to move ahead with building the new facility.
"The city council will be discussing how they plan to proceed with the project at the Wednesday, April 7 work session meeting." City spokesperson Crystal King told The Chronicle. "City staff hope to receive direction from the city council regarding both funding and a timeline at that meeting."
St. Helens Police Chief Brian Greenway made a final public pitch for the new facility during a community meeting Tuesday evening, April 6, at St. Helens Middle School. That meeting was one of several public outreach efforts conducted by the police department and city officials over the past several months.
