Construction on Station 31 to begin next month

The Lebanon Fire District Board approved a final contract with Emerick Construction for the new Station 31 project during a special Board of Directors meeting Dec. 22.

The maximum cost is not to exceed $13,805,290. With the contract finalized, construction will begin in January of 2023.

In November of 2019, voters passed a $16 million general obligation bond to support the construction of a new Station 31 and to purchase new apparatus for our fleet.

“This has been a challenging few years, dealing with the many obstacles between supply chain issues and material cost overruns,” District Chief Joseph Rodondi said. “The District is excited to get this project underway for the community.”

Jordan Fell, Executive Vice President of Emerick Construction, said, “Emerick is honored to be part of a team that has put so much effort in to designing a station that will serve the Lebanon community for years to come. We are excited to move into the construction phase of the project.”

Emerick Construction was selected as the Construction Manager/General Contractor (CM/GC) for the project in the Fall of 2021 as a cost-saving measure.

Construction of the new Station 31 is estimated to be completed in early 2024.
