Vevay officers to get new police station?


The Vevay Town Council met in regular session with all members present on Monday night, September 10th, and town marshal Brian Morton asked the town council to consider the creation of a separate police department.

Marshal Morton approached Council about purchasing the old NAPA building at 811 East Main Street for the Police Department. He informed the Council that they have run out of room at Town Hall and parking is an issue and several other things were also mentioned.

Teresa Lyons of Homestead Realty attended the meeting to give information on the building to the council. After discussion the council decided to take this under advisement and will set up a special meeting to meet with Brian Morton to look at the building and view his plans for this property.
