During a City Council meeting, officials considered the costs to replace or demolish a Satellite Beach fire station, reports Hometown News.
The city is moving the current fire station due to flooding concerns. Annual maintenance for the current fire department structure is $60,000.
The building is approximately 30 years old and is showing signs of age and the current driveway does not meet Florida Department of Transportation traffic intersection requirements. Public works estimates that repair for the driveway will cost $30,000.
After a series of hurricanes in 2005, the city replaced the roof of the fire station, but it will need to be replaced in the next two years due to loss of protective material.
