The Greenfield Fire Department is currently in a temporary fire station and hoping to move in new quarters in early Summer but that date has been adjusted to August, reports Greenfield Recorder.
The City Council approved $17.3 million for both the temporary and new fire stations, of which $1.77 million is for the temporary station. The living quarters and offices are contracted at $404,114, and the apparatus bays are contracted at just over $1 million.
The city is expecting to save money through the work being done by Public Works, IT and Central Maintenance departments.
Vanguard Modular Building Systems of Danvers will deliver the living quarters and office space around May 20, while New England Builders of Methuen will deliver the apparatus bays on May 31.
The current fire station must be razed to make room to build the city’s new library.
