KILLINGTON — Steve Finneron, chair of the Fire Department Facilities Committee, provided the Selectboard with an update on the committee’s work at the Selectboard meeting Tuesday, May 19. He noted the Committee has met close to ten times since December.
They have toured the fire station, reviewed the facilities assessment/ building feasibility study completed by outside Architects, analyzed cost estimates and financing options for building, and reviewed alternative building sites.
Finneron noted the committee determined it was not cost effective to renovate the existing structure, citing limitations on the buildings location. The committee believes the Department should be relocated within one to two miles of the current building to keep adequate coverage of both Killington and Pico Resorts, as well as the residential areas.
The committee requested to review the locations with the Selectboard in executive session, as the committee is worried that pricing may increase if sellers are aware there is interest in the land.
Finneron also announced that the committee will host a series of Open House Days at the Fire Station on Killington Rd. later this summer and fall to help share its findings with Town voters. The committee intends to invite all voters to visit the station and see firsthand why they believe the Town needs to invest in a new facility.
