BETHEL, Conn. — The Bethel Police Department will host an open house of the proposed new police station, according to a story in The News-Times .

Tours of the existing building will be offered from 4 to 7 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 4, with an informational session at 6 p.m. During that session, the chief and other commanding officers will be available to answer questions about the $14.5 million plan, The News-Times said.

Supporters of the plan say the existing station on Plumtrees Road is too small, has asbestos and does not comply with environmental regulations. The new facility would be built near Bethel High School at Judd Avenue and Whittlesey Drive, The News-Times said.

A special town meeting on the proposal is planned for 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 8, at the municipal center. At the meeting, residents will vote to schedule a referendum, which officials hope will be Dec. 17, according to the report. The public is also invited to a formal public hearing on the plan at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 1, at the municipal center, The News-Times said.
