The Homer City Council will examine recommendations to build a new police station during its regular meeting May 30. The Police Station Building Task Force voted Tuesday to recommend constructing a new facility near Waddell Way just north of the post office.

The panel also weighed whether to expand the current police station, which was built in the 1980s. Task force member Coletta Walker said the city-owned Waddell site had great access on all sides and seemed like the logical choice.
