Smyrna Rejects Police Station Expansion

SMYRNA, Del. (AP) - Residents in Smyrna have rejected a proposal to expand and renovate the town's police station, a move that would have required a 15.5 percent tax increase.
The proposal was voted down in a non-binding referendum Monday. The town council will have the final say on the $4.9 million project.
A town committee suggested renovating the 5,000-square-foot Glenwood Avenue station, which is 24 years old and has been deemed too small to house police staff, equipment, evidence and prisoners. Current plans call for a nearly 27,000-square-foot new station that would have more space for holding suspects. Officers would also have a tactical training area.
