Port Washington Mayor Marty Becker announced Tuesday he has formed a task force to look at the need for a new fire station — a firehouse that potentially could be shared with the Village of Saukville. The focus, Becker said, is to meet Port’s needs for a new firehouse, but if the task force finds a location and design that would allow for a joint facility, that would be ideal. Becker, a former member of the Police and Fire Commission who pledged to work for a new firehouse during his campaign, said he wants the task force to look at everything from the city’s needs, potential site locations and design requirements and the costs involved. “It’s time to do it,” Becker said in an interview last week. “I want to get off center. This is for the safety of the community. “I want to know can we build it? Where will we build it? What are our needs? Where are we going to get the money for it?”
