An outside consultant recommended Monday that Elizabeth City Fire Station 2 be relocated as a first step in a long-term plan to enhance overall fire protection in the city. Greg Grayson of N.C. Fire Chief Consulting also recommended that the city’s long-term fire protection plans include building a third fire station in the western part of the city and eventually moving Fire Station 1 closer to or at Elizabeth City State University. City Council took no action following Grayson’s presentation. No cost estimates were presented to City Council Monday but city Fire Chief Chris Carver said Tuesday that a new fire station would probably cost between $4 million and $5 million. Carver requested the $16,000 fire station location study at council’s retreat and City Council later approved the request.
