The Muncy Area (PA) Volunteer Fire Department is preparing to bid a project for a new fire hall, reports sungazette.com.
Officials say the construction will cheapen building maintenance and consolidate the three buildings the department owns into one facility. The move will ultimately relocate the fire hall from Main Street in Muncy Borough to East Penn Street in Muncy Township, right next to Brumer Pond Road.
The department purchased the property about a year ago for $230,000; construction is expected to begin this spring.
The construction will upgrade the facility from four closed bays to six pull-through ones, and the new digs will be strictly a fire station.
Previously, the Muncy Area Volunteer Fire Department owned the Clarkstown Station in Muncy Creek Township and the Paul Geringer social hall, which were acquired when several departments merged into Station 39, the report says.
