Construction on Bridgewater's new police station has hit a snag. Members of the police commission and town council met Tuesday night in an in-camera session to talk about the latest development. Town manager Ken Smith says it was to provide information to staff and get legal direction now that the contractor says the former MacKenzie bus property is far more contaminated than originally thought. The site off Victoria road was chosen over another location next to the former Dawson Memorial hospital on Dufferin street. Although there was suspected contaminants in the Victoria road location it was found to be worse than thought after several test areas were unearthed last week by the contractor. The initial plan was to spend an additional 100-thousand dollars to remediate the site to bring it up to residential standards. But it sounds like the cost to do that may be at the heart of the latest delay in building a replacement for the current, crowded police station below the town hall.
