Construction of the town's new 22,000-square-foot fire station will begin early next week and last eight months. Bids for the project totaled $6.2 million. The budget approved by voters in an August 2018 referendum was $6.5 million. Town Administrator Joel Gregozeski said officials had been concerned with the bidding environment because of a large amount of work in the construction industry. "We're happy, certainly, that we were able to produce bids that were within budget," Gregozeski told The Post-Crescent. "That was our goal." The Greenville Fire and EMS Department has two full-time firefighters, 50 paid-per-call volunteer firefighters and 15 paid-per-call volunteer first responders. The fire station will be built on town-owned land at the northwest corner of State 76 and Parkview Drive. It will have six truck bays with drive-through access, administrative offices, a large meeting room, an exercise room, a serving kitchen, a break room, lockers and a decontamination area to remove chemicals that firefighters bring back from fires.
