Fire station should be finished in March

LANDIS — Fire Station No. 2, which was first projected to be finished in mid-January, is now looking at a March 15 completion date.

The Board of Aldermen recently voted to spend an additional $14,281 on the $830,000 project to match the roof of City Hall to the new construction.

When completed, the fire station will have bays for three fire trucks and amenities for the firefighters, such as a day room, kitchen, offices, bathroom, showers and a storage facility.

The new fire station is connected to the town board’s meeting room. A public entrance will lead into the two structures with a hall between them that will serve as a gallery to display memorabilia.

The board room will undergo renovations as well.

New carpet, paint and relocation of the raised area where aldermen sit are on the list of improvements. In addition to a vestibule, restrooms, break room and handicapped access, the board room will be furnished with audio/visual equipment.
