City police in the patrol division are in the process of relocating to the Peter Herdic Transportation Museum, 810 Nichols Place, Mayor Derek Slaughter said.

“The patrol division is finalizing their temporary move to the transportation museum,” Slaughter said Wednesday.

Work crews from the streets and parks department could be seen parked outside of the museum and were working inside to prepare the building for the police to use.

The museum’s transportation items have been taken out, said a spokesman for River Valley Transit, which operates the facility.

Police on patrol division remained at City Hall as the process remains in flux. Police administrators and agents are in the Trade and Transit I third floor.

A list of the employees and their telephone extensions is in the lobby of Trade and Transit Centre I, 100 W. Third St., and on the city website. The phone numbers and extensions have not changed.

Williamsport employees were transferred to other offices temporarily after City Hall was condemned because rain leaked in through the roof in July and caused mold to form.

Gerardi said to accommodate the public he will post a route of the new offices and listing of employees on City Hall doors. These also are available on the city website at
