Bristol City Council will consider purchasing land for new fire station

The Bristol Board of Fire Commissioners voted Thursday to push forward a motion to the Bristol City Council to consider purchasing land for the building of a new fire station. Bristol Fire Chief Richard Hart brought a proposal to the city’s 10-Year Capital and Strategic Improvement Planning Committee last week for a new station. Continuing conversation revealed that nearly $400,000 had been appropriated previous to the current mayoral administration for a new station. He said he was unaware of any urgencies to build or sell the proposed land but it was good to move the potential purchase forward just in case. The board passed the motion unanimously for the mayor to bring the matter before the council and for the council to potentially approve the mayor to make contractual arrangements for the purchase of land for a new fire station.
