Marshfield MA Voting on Proposed Fire Station

Marshfield (MA) voters will decide whether to build a $3.5 million fire station. Fire Chief Kevin Robinson has been advocating construction of a new station since 2004, and he is hoping the project’s price tag won’t scare voters. A town administrator said the $3.5 million would be borrowed.

The current fire station serves the southeastern part of town and was built in the early 1900s. A garage was added in the 1950s.

Robinson said the structure is too small to house modern-day fire apparatus, the walls are cracked, the electrical system is corroded and the boiler is outdated.

If the station project is approved, construction will probably start in the spring and be completed between February and May 2014. Firefighters will have a temporary site to work out of during construction.
