Construction of a new fire-rescue station for Chancellor
Right now, the county is waiting to acquire land for a new fire and rescue station for Chancellor on State Route 3 until the state reviews number of calls and response times to determine the best location for a new station. The payment will come from the 2001 bond referendum. There is about $7.1 million left.
Design for this station started in July 2005.
Gary Skinner’s challenger, D.J. McGuire, told me the other day that he hopes VRE does not become the only issue in this race. He says the Lee Hill District doesn’t have a fire and rescue station and it should. Fire and Rescue Chief Chris Eudailey identified the Lee Hill area for a new station. It is unclear when it will be built.
Should the $7.1 million go to replacing the station on State Route 3 or to building a new station in the Lee Hill District?
