The City of Charles Town existing police and utilities departments are in two separate historic buildings downtown that have poor handicapped accessibility and lack the possibility of expansion. Since these two departments handle most of the public financial requirements for the city, it is important to provide a secure and ADA accessible facility for the public. To that end, the City of Charles Town purchased a large existing building with these necessary renovations in mind.
The renovations include space for the police department and its associated needs such as interrogation rooms, evidence rooms, and gymnasium. The utility department’s offices will be relocated to this facility including a multi-purpose room which will serve as the court room and other public board meetings. The police and utility departments will share conference rooms, restrooms, and the breakroom.
