Council OK's Renovations to Fire Station

Bradford City Council on Tuesday recognized National Teen Driver Safety Week.

Mayor Tom Riel read a proclamation asking everyone in the community to participate in, a contest that could earn Bradford Area High School grant money for teen driver safety programs.

Also Tuesday, council OK'd renovations to the Chestnut Street fire station that will include replacement and painting of two garage doors, one of which will be widened to house the city's new fire engine; replacement of the stairs on the north side of the building while preserving the ornamental steel brackets; and replacement of two rear windows with the possibility of replacing any and all that are in need of replacement, providing the windows remain the same size.

The Historical Architectural Review Board recommended the certificate of appropriateness.

Council also gave permission to advertise the sale of one surplus/obsolete 1976 Ward La France fire truck that has been removed from service. The minimum bid that will be accepted is $2,500.
