Sandy Springs will pay $1.2 million for a vacant, temporary site for a fire station while building a new fire station, reports Reporter Newspapers.
Fire Station Two is 50 years old and needs to be replaced. The temporary site, a former Enterprise car rental lot, is riddled with complexities for getting fire trucks in and out of traffic.
The proposed solution depends on the outcome of a lawsuit regarding the city’s attempt to evict three billboards from a lot across the street. Some council members are also concerned with the cost of the temporary station.
