Officials cut the ribbon
New township building features larger, updated space for police station
Cold, rainy weather couldn’t stop Limerick officials and residents from celebrating the township’s newest and proudest addition.
Officials the ribbon to the brand new Limerick Township Building Saturday and celebrated the new and improved space with some formal remarks, tours of the building and a few treats for visitors.
“Most importantly this new building provides residents with a state of the art facility in which all can gather to discuss and debate with the elected body the issues of importance to this community. A municipality exists only to serve the needs of its constituents. This building is meant to facilitate that purpose,” said Board of Supervisors’ Chairwoman Elaine Dewan.
The new building which was completed under the budget of $10,600,000, is a 34,500-squarefoot facility containing the new police station, administration, public areas and meeting rooms and a basement.

In addition to more square footage, the new police department has brand new holding cells, which the previous station did not have, and includes several updated spaces such as locker rooms and interview rooms.
“It will always be my hope that our officers return to this building safe and sound at the end of their shift. No matter where we have called home, we have always remained profession. This police

Following remarks from Saturday, officials stepped outside briefly to cut the ribbon. Guests were then welcomed into the lobby of the building and offered a chance to take tours of the building with police officers who have been working out of the new facility since August.
“A project of this nature is never easy but the board maintained an unwavering resolve in seeing this project through to its successful completion. On behalf of the entire organization, I thank the board for your commitment to staff who allowed this building to become a reality,” said Township Manager Daniel Kerr. “And we pledge that the work that will take place within these walls will continue to the best of our ability and with an increased sense of pride in being a member of this brave Limerick Township team as we work to serve this wonder-
