Police department clearing ground for new police station


Decatur – The Decatur Police Department is getting closer to moving.


The grounds have already been cleared around the former "Zexel" offices. The Decatur City Council is scheduled to vote September 3rd, to accept a 20 year lease agreement, paying $500,000 a year.


The police department will move to Southside Drive. The city is look for more space, for what has become a cramped police station, in downtown Decatur.


If council approves the measure the department could be ready to move by the spring.
