The rising cost of building materials will cause a delay of construction of a fire station, reports Albany Democrat-Herald.
The delay will push the completion of the project into mid-2023. A fire official said the department is adjusting its plans to make best possible use of the 26-year, $16 million bond.
In the interim, the fire department has moved its offices to the MBVA Building. The department plans to move two trailers onto the site and place offices in one and sleeping quarters in the other. Most of the fire engines and other vehicles will be housed in the service building on the back of the lot
