The highlight of the new $9 million public services headquarters in Westbrook is the fleet maintenance garage, which will service all of the city’s vehicles including police. Eric Dudley, the city’s director of public services and engineering, said his crew will make the move into the new Saco Street facility in the coming weeks. They are still awaiting furniture and internet service.
The new public services and fleet maintenance garage, which has been under construction for a year, will replace the aging facility built in the 1950s. It will also allow the city to consolidate operations.
The Westbrook School Department’s new transportation headquarters was also part of the public services overhaul. During construction, the school housed its fleet of buses at Westbrook Middle School, but moved into its new building two weeks ago.
