Milton fire chief hopes voters step up for new station
Last year, a $2.7 million proposal to replace the town’s aging fire station — which is comprised of a 200-year-old horse barn with an addition built in the 1950s — narrowly missed the required three-fifths majority. It was the fourth proposal since 2007 to fail to garner the 60 percent super majority.
While Marique said the town has kept the existing station well-maintained, he believes firefighters have done all they can.
A few years ago, police moved out the building to a new home on Townhouse Road. While this freed up space for firefighters, it did not affect the physical condition of the building.
Additionally, Marique said firefighters must follow strict parking and exiting procedures to ensure the safety of personnel, equipment and the building itself. Despite the precautions, he added accidents have broken some side mirrors and occasionally damaged garage doorways.
