The town of Johnston will take ownership of the Willow Street Fire Station, which has served as a reliable virus test-site over the past year. Early in his career, Johnston Mayor Joseph M. Polisena worked as a firefighter at the station, formerly owned by the Thornton Volunteer Fire Company. “I spent several years as a very young firefighter down there,” Polisena said. “The building is in good shape.” The town agreed to pay a nominal $10 fee to take possession of the building. Bids will be sought to install a new roof on the station, and as its new owners, the town will pay for utilities and upkeep. Town Council unanimously approved Resolution 2021-18: A Resolution Authorizing the Purchase of the Willow Street Fire Station from the Thornton Volunteer Fire Company, during a special meeting last week, held on Thursday, May 27.
