  • LJ police station getting closer to completion

        LEBANON JUNCTION - City police will soon have a place to call their own after years of sharing City Hall with the mayor and the city clerk and it’s all thanks to the dozens of people who have lent a hand to convert the former library on Main Street into a police station.

        What began as an empty 52-by-22 foot space in July has since been sectioned off and drywalled, creating an office for the chief of police, an interrogation room, a reception area, storage and space for each officer to have his own desk.

        The victory went to the green and gold by a 25-12, 20-25, 26-24 count.

        Through a strange fluke in the scheduling, the two teams will meet again this Thursday in Mount Washington.
