The wait is almost over for the new Perryville police department building.
"It's looking great and we're still 99 percent done," that was the response from Perryville Police Chief Allen Miller as he made his way around contractors in the department's new building on Friday afternoon.
The new 8,153 square foot building won't be finished by the target date, September 15. Officials and contractors confirmed Friday that October 1 is the projected date the building will be finished.
"We're waiting for the mechanical engineers, and the air conditioning guys. There's still tiles, painting, and the punch list," said Miller. "We had some setbacks with the mechanical engineers."
