IMLAY CITY — City commissioners are getting serious about the possibility of moving the police department to offices in the Lamb-Steele Building.

A move to the building's vacant lower level has been discussed for some time, and the matter was expected to be a topic of conversation at Tuesday's commission meeting.

The Lamb-Steele Building currently houses the Imlay City Senior Center. Some of the building's lower level had been rented out as medical offices in the past.

City Manager Amy Planck said a move could be accommodated in a relatively short period of time. The benefits to the police department would be greater space and enhanced facilities.

"It would probably occur in phases, but it shouldn't take long," said Planck. "They don't have that much furniture or items in the current building. "

Planck noted that the police department's computer system is currently tied in with the Lapeer County Intermediate School District.

"That would have to be reconfigurated," she said. "Otherwise, it should be an easy transition."

Assuming the move takes place, the department's current building would be put up for sale as commercial property.

The building had once served as the main office of Almont Manufacturing.

"That's an old building," said Planck. "Someone might want to buy it, tear it down and start over."

The Imlay City Police Department employs eight full-time officers, a police chief and a dispatcher.
