What should the city of Batavia do with its 160 year old police headquarters?
City Council appears willing to spend upwards of 45-thousand dollars to get some ideas.
The Police Station started out as a private home in 1853.
It was city hall for almost a century.
Now, 10 consultants have submitted proposals to the city for an analysis of a new or renovated police facility.
Police Chief Sean Heubusch says the existing headquarters hampers police activity:
"There really isn't a proper flow of personnel. Everyone who comes i nto the budiling comes in through the same main entrance. You have victims and witnesses co-mingling with complaintants and suspects. It becomes a safety issue."
City Council is expected to select a consultant for the police station study next month. It could take over a year to complete.

The study will look into renovating the existing building, moving to a new location or re-visit the idea of adding the city PD to the existing Sheriff’s Office on Park Road.
