ON AUGUST 8, 2017, VOTERS APPROVED REPLACING KEY FACILITIES
CITY COUNCIL CALLS SPECIAL ELECTION

After setting a goal for 2016-17 of developing a plan to address long-standing deficiencies in the City’s Public Safety and Services buildings currently located on Maumee Avenue, the City Council unanimously voted on May 8 to seek voter approval of major building improvements. On the August 8 ballot, City of Grosse Pointe residents will be asked whether to support the issuance of up to $12.96 million in bonds to replace Public Safety and Services facilities. If approved, the City would be able to build a critically needed new headquarters for the Police and Fire Department, address building safety and inadequate conditions in the Public Services building, and make basic repairs and renovations to repurpose the existing Public Safety building on Maumee Avenue.

EXISTING BUILDINGS CONDITIONS
Existing fire station bays: Steel ceiling beams can't be raised to fit replacement for nearly three decade old yellow pumper
BondInfo2PS
Existing fire bay: Too tight to maintain and store equipment

Bondinfo3PS
Police station: Ceiling damage from multiple leaks in 1928 building despite many repairs

Bondinfo4PS
The booking area, detention cell, and interrogation room for suspects all share space with or access to the regular desktop workspace for police officers (shown below), putting safety at risk.

Bondinfo7PS
Existing public works yard: Uncovered vehicle storage with poor and unsafe maneuverability

Bondinfo5DPW
Insufficient storage space with nowhere to preserve road salt or purchase supplies in bulk

Bondinfo6DPW
Rust is evident on the rear of the truck that is exposed (below).

Bondinfo8DPW
Employee lockers are in the lunch room, where there is a door to a single unisex bathroom stall and which also opens up to the vehicle maintenance bay. There is no ventilation or windows. There is no locker room to clean up after working with garbage or in a sewer pit, and no space for safety training.
