Wilton approves $785K for next phase of police HQ project

The Board of Selectmen approved $785,000 Monday to move to the next phase of the new police headquarters project and extend the contract with vendor Tecton Architects. The overall percentage of design fees and administration on the project have come in currently at just under 7.5 percent. He said Tecton and the town are certain about what the building will look like and there aren’t any more opportunities for changes. Burney told the selectmen that the total project cost is “all locked” at $17 million — the price that was presented and overwhelmingly approved at an annual town meeting vote in April. “That is construction, design, extras, anything that has to go into legal fees, we’re locked at $17 million,” Burney said. “We have all made a commitment that we will not go above $17 million.”
