SULLIVAN'S ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - By this time next week you could see signs of construction underway for the new town hall and police station on Sullivan's Island.
Tuesday evening town leaders ceremonially broke ground off Middle Street next to the fire department. The new building will make it easier for the people who live there to easily access some of the town's services.
"In this day in age to think about it, where people still come by on their bikes to drop the water bill in the mailbox, I think says a lot about the character of the island," Sullivan's Island Mayor Patrick O'Neil said. "We really wanted to keep that in the new town hall."
It's also going to house the new police station, which will have better access to the park nearby and the commercial district.
The 12,000 square foot building is designed as category four building that should withstand hurricanes and earthquakes.
The hope is to have it completed by this time next year.
