The Police Station Building Committee hired Municipal Code Consulting (MCC), at a cost of up to $10,000, to evaluate a structural and mechanical review of the current stage of construction on the station, located off Chopmist Hill Road next to the Scituate Senior Center. In one of their first acts after being appointed in January, the new Scituate Town Council ordered a review on the $1.7 million build- ing after construction on the station halted last November following the election.

Board members Richard Colavecchio, Jennifer Hawkins, Albert Gizzarelli, Curtis Ruotolo and John Steere voted in favor of the project, and members Catherine Lynn, Michael Moan, Steven Tillinghast and Chairman John Yoakum voted against.
