WATERVILLE, Maine — A committee looking for a home for a new police station in Waterville has found three possible locations.

City Manager Michael Roy said officials are discussing a purchase price with the three owners.

He did not reveal the locations.

The City Council voted earlier this year to spend $2.5 million on a police station. Currently, the police station is in cramped quarters in the basement of City Hall.

Roy told the Morning Sentinel a subcommittee of the Police Station Committee is negotiating prices on the sites.

The subcommittee is expected to bring the numbers back to the full committee next month.

The city has advertised for an architect, and the proposals are due early next month.
