Spring move-in still anticipated for new Aboyne OPP detachment building

Despite being a few weeks behind schedule, Wellington County Police Services Board chairman Lynda White remains confident in the spring move-in date for the new OPP detachment building in Aboyne.

During her presentation to county council on Jan. 27, White said there is one new member on the police services board, and another member will be leaving in May.

“Things will be interesting for the board over the next year,” she said.

White updated county council on the status of the OPP operations centre in Aboyne.

Following a site meeting the previous Monday, White said, “They are about two weeks behind at this point, but the contractors are assuring us that the police will be able to move in by the last week of March or first week of April.

“Hopefully that will come about.”

The status report submitted to the board on Jan. 12 noted  site grading, curbs and sidewalks were 95% complete.

In addition, the base coat of pavement was in place.

While exterior site work had stopped for the winter, it was noted that both the structural steel installation and metal deck installation was complete.

Roofing is currently 65% complete and window installation is about 80% complete.
