Construction on a new firehouse in Greene County’s Miami Twp. is expected to begin this summer.
The $5.75 million project is being funded through a 2.4-mill, 30-year bond issue that voters overwhelmingly passed in May 2017.
Township officials are now in the bidding process in search of a contractor for the job.
The new building will be constructed on about two acres at 1001 Xenia Avenue in Yellow Springs. The land was purchased by Miami Twp. Board of Trustees from Wright State University in 2017 for $350,000, according to Greene County property records.
Yellow Springs Home Inc. is under contract to buy the rest of the lots from WSU at the site for a purchase price of $270,000. Home inc. plans to build apartment units for senior citizens.
