It will only cost $3 million. Fire Station #3 on Summit has some mold issues so our designated council person says let’s just build a new one.
Not to pour water on the parade, but wouldn’t it be prudent to make a cost benefit analysis? We need a building to house fire trucks, but do we need a brand new one? Has anyone determined what a minimal 5 year repair fix would be? If this were the city council person’s own money, would he be pushing this 3 million dollar plan or would he carefully consider whether a cheaper fix would work?
This is not a municipal meeting building; a fire station building receives minimal public use. Is it really a good idea to build a new one with our money without really exploring other options?
