Algoma getting more confident with latest public safety referendum push

The feedback has been much more positive this time around, but Algoma City Administrator Matt Murphy still wants to answer your questions about the upcoming referendum regarding a new public safety building. The spring election on April 4th will mark the second consecutive year the City of Algoma has approached voters for a funding request to build a new public safety building. Last year, over 60 percent of voters voted against a new facility located on Sunset Avenue that would have housed the city’s police, Fire, and EMS departments. This year, city officials have trimmed about $2 million and several thousand square feet from the original proposal along with other changes that will keep the police department stationed at Algoma City Hall. Murphy says residents appreciate the changes that were made to keep the price tag lower, but the project’s overall cost and its location are still yielding more questions.

About 60 residents attended their public information session earlier this month, but Murphy says he would like to many more attend their second event on March 29th from 6-8 p.m. at the Algoma Performing Arts Center.
