WILLIAMSTOWN — The Select Board tonight will host the first of two public hearings on a $2.5 million bond issue that would finance the construction of a new public safety building.
The 7 p.m. hearing will be held at the fire station on Depot Street, and will include a tour of a facility town officials say has outlived its usefulness.
The proposed solution — a new public safety building that would be built on town-owned land on Meadow Street — will be on the Town Meeting Day ballot next month.
Plans call for construction of a five-bay, two-story building that would include a wood-pellet boiler and a solar hot water heater. The proposed structure would replace the fire station and the neighboring ambulance building, creating modest second-floor living quarters for volunteer firefighters and include some space for the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.
Residents who can’t attend tonight’s public hearing will have another chance to voice their questions at a final hearing at the fire station Saturday, Feb. 23 at 11 a.m.MORE IN Central Vermont
