Fenwick Public Safety Building Groundbreaking

FENWICK — Fenwick Island officials this week officially broke ground on the construction of a new public safety building.

The new 3,500-square foot facility is being built on a town-owned property adjacent to the public works garage. The town has contracted with Bunting Construction to build the facility, which came in with a price tag of just over $603,000.

The building will include a reception area, office space and lockers for the town’s police department and a holding area for arrestees. In addition, about 650 square feet in the facility will be set aside for the town’s 26-member beach patrol. The facility will be built to hurricane strength standards and could be used as a command center and shelter in the event of an emergency.

The facility should be completed by next April or May.
