Two major public safety buildings are in process of completion, one for Police and one for Fire.
The new police station features triple the space of the existing police station. It includes a safer intake, a booking and detention area, space to meet modern evidence and retention requirements, community rooms and dedicated space for weapon storage and animal control.
The new fire station is a $6 million project that replaces the existing Islington Fire Station with a larger facility capable of servicing current and future demand growth associated with response-time goals, expanded town development, and increased transit activity.
To update and guide the Men’s Club through the developments are three top town administrators:
Pamela Dukeman is the Finance Director responsible for preparing and presenting the General Fund budget to the Board of Selectmen. The Selectmen review all requests and town-wide issues and present a budget to Town Meeting for approval.
Jeffrey Silva, Chief of Police, leads a staff of over fifty public safety professionals who are committed to providing excellence in police service through problem solving and collaboration to help determine the underlying causes of crime and disorder.
Nora Loughlane, Director of Community and Economic Development, is responsible for management, administration, and coordination of all land use related Town functions. This Department fosters and advocates responsible economic growth and development.
Attendees are encouraged to bring guests and questions. The event will be held at the Westwood Senior Center, 60 Nahatan St. at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, February 16. $3 donation is requested. Early birds get pastries and coffee.
