GREENFIELD — The Greenfield Police Department is moving on up. Not to the East Side, but down the street to the old Weakley County Municipal Electric Service building at 226 North Front Street.
The Greenfield City Board voted 4-2 Monday afternoon in favor of the move. Alderman Danny Nanney abstained, while aldermen Joe Grooms and Troy Jones voted against moving the police department out of the existing city hall building.
Greenfield Police Chief Danny Harris said he is excited about the move. “We are going from having eight people in two rooms that equal about 600 square feet to a building of about 2,000 square feet for eight people.
“I will get to have an office now,” Harris said.
In other action, the Board voted 6-0, with Alderman James Roy Pope abstaining, to hold the annual Fiddle Sticks Festival April 17-20.
The Greenfield Advancement Association will handle most of the details surrounding the local festival.
