Golden Valley (MN) City Council is expected to back a $1.7 million bond request to help build a new fire station to replace two aging buildings, reports ccxmedia.org.
Golden Valley presently has three fire stations with a paid-on-call model for staff, the report says. A study, though, suggested the city move to a two-station, duty-crew model.
City documents note that Stations 2 and 3 are out-of-date and not in ideal locations, the report says. To remedy this, Golden Valley wants to construct a new facility near Highway 100 on its east side.
The plan calls for construction on a potential new station to begin in 2024 or 2025, with Golden Valley submitting another bond request in 2024 for $4.6 million.
