The Village of Waterloo is exploring the possibility of using a $25,000 allocation from Seneca County’s American Rescue Plan Act funds to study the feasibility of a new or renovated public safety building. This idea was discussed at the Village Board’s January 8 meeting, although no final decision was reached.
Currently, the Waterloo Police Department shares the Municipal Building at 41 W. Main St. with the village’s administrative offices and a private insurance agency. The space, originally an automobile dealership, also previously housed the Village Court before its consolidation with the town court.
The potential study would evaluate the needs and options for a dedicated public safety facility, aiming to improve the operational efficiency and effectiveness of local law enforcement. This initiative reflects the village’s efforts to utilize federal funds strategically to address critical infrastructure and public service needs.
