Frank Koss, Chief

Hinesburg Community Police

 

On February 1, 2014, the Hinesburg Community Police took occupancy of a new 3500 square foot building built by Dave Pratt of Millbrook Building and Remodeling.  Having never been the police chief involved in a new building before, it was a challenge made considerably easier by Millbrook.

In 2013, the Town of Hinesburg requested a bond for 1.1 million to build a new police station.  The bond amount was based on an estimate provided as part of the design process.  After the bond passed, the updated estimate was $120,000 higher than before the vote.  This clearly put the project behind even before ground breaking.  Millbrook won the contact and from the first meeting, became a significant player in cost reduction and suggestions to help the town save money.  In the end, the actual building was under budget but due to needed furnishings an additional $11,000 was needed.

As far as a time line, the bond was passed in March.  The town waited 30 days for any possible appeal and then began accepting bids for the contract in August.  Millbrook was selected and approved to break ground around October 1, 2013.  Except for minor outside work that will be completed in the spring, the building was completed in just four months.  The quality of work is exceptional and during the project, requested minor changes were many times made without additional cost. 

I cannot emphasis enough my satisfaction with Millbrook and I would recommend them for any project.  I would encourage anyone with questions to contact me and I will always be happy to show off our building.
