Salisbury To Build New $4 Million Fire Station

Posted: Updated:

Salisbury, Md. - Salisbury is getting ready to break ground on a new fire station, just feet from the old one.
     
It will cost approximately $4 million to build the new Station 2 on Brown street, which serves the north side of the city.

While Salisbury mayor Jim Ireton admits, the new building will cost about one million dollars more than renovating the current structure, he says it's a necessary expense.

"It would be impossible to fix it up to today's building code standards.  Apparatus have gotten larger over the years, there's a much larger area that this fire station has to serve," says Mayor Ireton.

Along with the new building, the construction project will also improve roads, and infrastructure near the Dover Dale and Church Street neighborhoods.
