Westborough breaks ground for new fire station

Westborough – Town officials gathered to break ground Sept. 10 at the Milk Street location where the town's new fire station will soon be built. Robert Brown, the chair of the Municipal Building Committee (MBC), noted in his opening remarks that it was fitting that the ground breaking was taking place on the "eve of 9/11." "As people were running away from the buildings firefighters, police and EMTs were running in," he said. "When 911 calls come in [to Westborough], I want the firefighters to know the town is behind them, they have good equipment and they are respected and loved."
