An Open House was held at the Mint Hill Police department on Sunday, November 3 from 2-4 pm and was well attended by citizens anxious to get a look inside the newly remodeled building that had once been the town hall.
A ribbon cutting ceremony was held at 2 pm, beginning with a prayer led by Chaplain Albert Leath, followed by comments from Mint Hill Police Chief Ledford and Mayor Ted Biggers.
“It is an honor as your mayor to stand before you today, and represent the Board of Commissioners and the police department,” says Mayor Biggers. “We present it, debt-free to the citizens of this town, as a place where the Mint Hill Police Department will effectively and efficiently protect the citizens of Mint Hill.”
Chief Ledford was appreciative of the work of others whose work behind the scenes brought the project to fruition. He introduced the members of his staff that were present and gave special thanks to Mint Hill town Manager Brian Welch for facilitating a smooth process.
Once the doors were open, citizens were allowed inside to tour the facilities and enjoy light refreshments.
