‘Burning issue’ – should Westborough build new Fire Station?

Westborough – Fire Department Captain Phil Kittredge acknowledges that to look at the outside of the town's Fire Station one might not see the immediate need for a replacement station to be built as soon as possible. But once inside, with its cramped quarters, water damage and numerous code violations, it is readily apparent, he said, that the station, built in 1886, has outlived its usefulness. The town's voters must decide that question for themselves on Tuesday, May 15 when they go to the polls to vote on a Proposition 2 ½ debt exclusion that would allocate $11 million for a new Fire Station that would be built on land right next to the existing one on Milk Street. The station held an Open House on May 5 (with another scheduled for May 12) as a way to garner support for the new project.
