The City of York has received a $5 million grant that will allow the city to transform the existing City Hall, 50 West King St., into a modern police station. The rest of the city administration, staff and mayor’s office will be moving into a new location at 101 S. George St., which the city purchased in March.
50 West King Street will get an $867,531 renovation to make the new police station modern and efficient. Governor Corbett’s office is reviewing Ed Rendell’s 2010 grants to make sure they are good use of taxpayer money. This has caused delays in the distribution of previously approved funds.
York City is working hard to reduce crime and create a more positive perception of the city. A modern facility and better tools should help city police make more headway in the fight to curb crime.
