Easton Barrack and Garage/Communications Building (Talbot)

Bill Text: Provide funds to construct a new Easton Barrack and Garage/Communications Building.


Project Description: This project will construct an 11,750 gross square foot (GSF) barrack and a
5,050 GSF garage and communications building in Easton, Maryland. The barrack will be a one-
story building and will provide space for administrative, communications, prisoner processing,
evidence collection, storage, vehicle, and electronics repair functions. The garage will include
facilities for vehicle repair and vehicle storage. In addition, the project includes parking and a radio
tower. The new facility is meant to replace a 9,728 GSF barracks-residence. The current barrack will
be demolished when its replacement is complete.

Comments: The Easton Barrack, Barrack “I”, serves Talbot, Caroline, and Dorchester counties. The
existing barrack was built in 1958 and was designed as a residence and operations center for 15
troopers in a largely rural area. In fiscal 2004, 65 personnel including 50 troopers will be assigned to
Barrack I. Based upon a consultant study, renovation of the existing barrack would not be cost
effective.

    The fiscal 2003 Capital Improvement Program (CIP) estimated fiscal 2003 construction costs of
$5.8 million; however the General Assembly, through action in the 2002 Maryland Consolidated
Capital Bond Loan, deferred construction funding to fiscal 2004. The Department of State Police
advises that the fiscal 2004 request for $5.3 million, a decrease of $500,000 from the 2003 CIP, is due
to the availability of a more refined project design estimate.

    Because the new building is a replacement facility, its opening should have minimal impact on the
operating budget. The State Police advise that $65,000 will be necessary in fiscal 2005, the projected
opening of the new barrack, for one-time expenditures including new office furniture, a phone
system, and garage equipment. These projected start-up costs are consistent with those of other,
recently constructed replacement barracks.
