Madison (WI) City May Lease Town Fire Station During Renovations

The city of Madison (WI) is considering leasing a fire station from the town of Madison (WI) while the city renovates and expands its own fire station, according to a report published by the Wisconsin State Journal.

The newspaper reported the lease would be rent free for two years in exchange for a promise the city would guarantee five town employees would be hired by the city in comparable positions when the city absorbs most of the town on Oct. 31, 2022.

Since Nov. 1, 2020, the city of Madison has been providing fire and emergency services to the town while waiting for the merger to happen.

Meanwhile, the city of Madison will remodel and expand its station, increasing the building size from 10,850 square feet to 13,250 square feet and make other improvements to the tune of $3.96 million.
