The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors vote unanimously to find a contractor to build a new fire station, reports Tysons Reporter.
The existing fire station was built in 1978 and plans have been in the works to replace the fire station for a decade. The existing needs are more apparatus bays, major upgrades to its building systems, and enhanced living facilities for female personnel.
The new station will be approximately 20,000 square feet in size with five bays. The county has approved a $15 million construction budget, estimating that the total cost of the project will be $20 million.
