Did Sudbury just invest substantial resources in equipment and renovation to move fire dispatch into a combined joint dispatch at the Police station?
Did this move contribute to overcrowding and stress at the Police Sation despite assertations to the contrary during the Dispatch debate that the police station could handle the added function ?
Did the Town say just last year when making the case for the joint Dispatch that a new Police Sation was not in the forseeable future - we could not afford to wait and needed to make investments in the current facility?

Why is it that whether it is the schools, police station or any other town building, it is always a surprise that roofs need to be replaced. Is there any town planning done in Sudbury? Roofs do not fail over night.

The headline on the video is misleading. The juxt of the video talks about replacing the police station, not the police station roof. You might want to relisten and replace headline

Sudbury did have a comprehensive roof survey done by the consultants Russo Barr for nineteen public buildings, including the police station, and dated February 3, 2012. The document is posted on-line here:
Page 7 states:
8. Police Station - 415 Boston Road
The roof area of the entire building is approximately 6,600 square feet (SF).
• One steep-sloped roof area contains approximately 6,600 SF of shingle roofing, labeled Roof Area No.1 on the roof plan, estimated to be approximately 20 years old.
1. Replace the steep-sloped shingle roof (Roof Area Nos. 1 at 6,600 SF) in year TBD (Owner has decided to postpone corrective work, as the status of the building is under review). Replacement includes installation of a new heavy duty architectural asphalt shingle system complete with felt underlayment, ice and water barrier membrane, ventilation improvements, gutters and downspouts, and a roofing manufacturer's material warranty (minimum 40-year time frame).
There is a spreadsheet later on that estimates the cost of this repair in 2010 as $46,000.
There are a number of other roofs for which the consultant recommends repair or replacement as well.
