Ashford Police Department Relocates

By  | 

The Ashford Police Department has a new home all because of flooding.

Wednesday crews spent the day moving and cleaning out the old building.
The building flooded twice within the last three days.
The mayor says the building lost complete power around 3 a.m.
The police department and dispatch will now be moved to the old Ashford Medical building.
It's located at 1860 Old Highway 84.

"Under the circumstances this put us in a position where you have to make a decision, after talking with the council we decided to lease the piece of property for 6 months with the intent to purchase," said Ashford Mayor Jonathan Grecu.

Dispatch is currently operating out of the city hall.
The mayor hopes to have everything set up and running at the new location by the end of Wednesday or no later than Thursday.
