EPD acquires new building to house specialized emergency response vehicles




Evansville Police specialty units now have a new place to house their vehicles and equipment. The 16,000+ building will allow the department to keep all of their resources in one centralized location. The lack of space in the previous facility meant some of the resources were kept at different satellite locations. The lack of space also slowed the ability to access vehicles during emergencies.
Following a public notice in the Courier and Press and a public hearing in front of the Safety Board, the lease was approved. The funding for the $4,000 a month lease was included in the EPD budget request for 2014. The EPD budget was reviewed by, and approved by, the City Council in their recent budget hearings.
The EPD would like to thank everyone who made this much needed move possible. The improved efficiency this facility will provide will have a positive impact on the community.
