New Fire Station

     At a special Board of Aldermen meeting held, Monday evening, September 21, 2020, the City of Puxico took the first steps in building a new fire station for the Puxico Fire Department.

     First, the Board approved Ordinance 20-04 which gave Mayor McLean the authority to sell property owned by the City located at the corner of Cemetery Road and East Richardson Avenue (PP Highway) to Chad Payne at a cost of $15,900.

     Next, the Board approved Ordinance 20-05 which gave Mayor McLean the authority to enter into a lease purchase agreement with Chad Payne for a fire station building that will be built on the property purchased by Payne.  this lease  purchase agreement is a 10 year lease with the City making monthly payments of $2,650.  At the end of the 10 years, the building and the  property will belong to the City.

     The building that Payne has proposed to build is a 50' by 100' by 16' all steel building, with 4' reinforced vinyl back insulation for the roof and the walls.  the building will have5 bay areas, with 4 having 14' by 14' overhead doors and 1 having a 12' by 12' overhead door.  These bays, of course, will house the fire truck and fire equipment.  The plans for the building also include 2 restrooms that will have a shower, toilet and sink.  The building will be heated using two 125 K BTU natural gas furnaces.  An office area, the walls of which will be built by the City at a later date, will also have a 2.5 ton central AC/natural gas furnace.

     Payne plans to begin the concrete  work for the foundation as soon as the deed and the lease purchase agreement has been signed which should be done this week (September 22-25).
