Fire station design ready for bids

February 1st, 2013 in News

Designs for the new Fire Station No. 3 on Cherry Creek are finished, and city staff say the project is ready to bid out. But the Jefferson City Council has yet to approve the plan for the current installment of the half-cent capital improvements sales tax, which will provide the needed funding for the project.

At the Public Safety Committee meeting Thursday, Public Works Director Roger Schwartze said the final designs for the new $2.4 million station are completed and staff would like to begin the process of advertising the project, but can't because the council has not signed off on the plan for how the capital improvement sales tax will be used.
