Argyle’s police station has outgrown its space, and town leaders are looking to replace the station.
Town council on April 17 decided on the name of the proposed future station—Don Moser Law Enforcement Facility. Moser is a former Argyle mayor and retired firefighter who died in April 2022. He served as mayor from 2017 to 2020, according to his obituary.
The current station is located at 506 N. Highway 377.
“We are going to have to construct a new facility,” said Town Administrator Erika McComis. “When 377 expands, it’s going to be pretty much right at the building, so we’ll need to get them out of that. Also, they’ve just grown where that size is non-conducive to the number of employees that they have. So, they’re just out of room.”
She hopes that some decisions on the new station will be made in the next couple of meetings. Construction likely wouldn’t start for another year, she said. The old building would be sold.
McComis said the new station’s location is still being discussed and that land will need to be acquired. As far as funding, she said the town has some money in its Capital Improvement Fund but the town will need to acquire a bond for the remainder.
