The city is holding a ribbon cutting ceremony and offering tours so people can get a close-up look at the new facility.

 

Madras Mayor Melanie Widmer says it looks great.  "It's about 14 thousand square feet. It's a huge improvement from where we've been.  There's a lot of new things in this facility, especially  for the police station.  It's in much better condition than where they were.  They'll have an interview room, evidence storage and training space, nice offices, unlikes the offices they have now which were formerly jail cells."

 

The former city hall was in a floodway and was half the size of the new facility.

 

City officials and the police deparment will officially move into the new city hall next Friday Janaury 18th.
