STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) - Starkville aldermen have turned down a temporary donation for police office space ahead of police station renovations.

The Commercial Dispatch reports (https://bit.ly/1U1RIGy ) the aldermen rejected the donation from former Chief Administrative Officer Lynn Spruill on Tuesday.

Approximately 1,100 square feet of Spruill-owned Louisville Street retail space could have been used as the police department’s seventh temporary location.

Police operations are expected to be divided up between six off-site locations while its headquarters are renovated. Aldermen approved up to almost $28,000 to prepare unused space in the city’s administrative home for the temporary move.

Renovations are expected to begin later this summer on the city’s former administrative home. Officers are expected to temporarily exit the building for about 10-11 months, and the project is slated to finish in April.
