The City will begin construction on two new fire stations in the coming fiscal year.
In late November/early December, the City is expected to break ground on Station No. 8 at 1612 Red Bud Lane. About eight weeks later, the City will break ground on a new station at the intersection of Double Creek Boulevard and Lisa Rae Drive.
The Lisa Rae Drive station will replace the existing Station No. 4, currently located at 3300 Gattis School Road.
The City expects construction to be completed by fall/winter 2016.
The new stations will improve response times in the southeast and far east areas of the City.
