The Glasgow Police Department could be moving it’s headquarters to a new location.  After a lengthy closed session at last night’s Glasgow City Council meeting, the council adopted an ordinance on first reading to lease with the option to purchase the property at 100 South Broadway, which is the location of Venture Contracting.  Glasgow Mayor Rhonda Trautman tells WCLU News that the police department will benefit from the convenience and space of their proposed new location.

Councilman M.D. Armstrong abstained from voting on the ordinance.  Mayor Trautman says he did so because he represented Venture Contracting in bringing the item to the council.

 

In other Glasgow City Council news, a resolution was adopted to show support for reform to the retirement system being utilized by city employees.  Councilman Wendell Honeycutt of the Finance Committee tells WCLU News the reforms being proposed statewide by the Kentucky League of Cities would prevent municipalities from bankrupting under the current system.
