Plans for the upcoming building project continues to progress. The architect, WMCRP, Inc., had submitted 50% Construction Documents for review and comment. The 100% Construction Documents are scheduled for completion in September 2004. It is anticipated that the project will be put out to bid and a construction contract awarded this fall.
The project will bring much needed improvements to the fire station. A two-story addition will be built on the west and south side of the existing building built in 1964. The rennovations/ additions will include a new bay for a paramedic unit, improved sleep quarters, training facilities, offices, a fire alarm and sprinkler system, upgraded electrical service, new heating and cooling systems, and engine exhaust system.
It is anticipated that construction will take nine to twelve months to complete.
