Construction will create tight quarters for Hopkinton fire department
At town meeting, voters approved a request for $2,995,000 to create a second story and add a new bay onto the town’s main fire station in the village of Contoocook.
“We’re moving forward with a 15-year loan that’s actually at a lower interest rate than what we planned,” said O’Brien. “So that’s good.”
Some of the department’s vehicles may have to spend part of the summer outside, and the town is considering finding some temporary office space for Mumford so that administrative work can be done away from the chaos of construction.
But the short-term pain will yield long-term gains, he said, and for a department that’s been working in extremely tight quarters for a long time, those gains are welcome.
