The Beaver Dam Common Council will consider whether to fund a study about building a second fire station. The city’s Police and Fire Commission approved forwarding the request from Fire Chief Alan Mannel on Tuesday. Mannel has been lobbying since at least 2016, for a second fire station to address the fire department’s needs for more staff power as development continues on the city’s north side and the population ages. He has said a new station would cut call times to the north side dramatically. The current fire station is south of downtown, while much of the city’s recent development has taken place on the city’s northern edge. An ad hoc committee about the fire department’s needs also signed off on moving in this direction. Mannel is ultimately pitching a referendum to pay for the new station and staffing needs.
