Ashland City Council members again failed Tuesday to come to come to a conclusion about how to fund construction of a proposed $4.4 million police station.

A majority of the council approved on May 28 discussing and perhaps creating a redevelopment authority that would borrow money to build the station and then lease it to the city. But after half an hour of discussion Tuesday, Mayor Debra Lewis indicated that it was clear there would not be enough members of the council in favor to produce the two-thirds supermajority needed to create the authority, and suggested delaying any vote on the matter.
