I realized 524 also isn’t with them anymore as well


East Dundee FPD wants new station

The Daily Herald has an article about the East Dundee Fire District‘s desire for a new station:

East Dundee fire district trustees will hold a special meeting at 8:30 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 16, to discuss an ordinance that would place a referendum on the Nov. 6 ballot to sell general obligations bonds to build a new fire station.

Trustees will not only decide whether to pose the question to voters, but they will decide how much money they will need to raise through the bond sale.

If voters approve the request for funds, the fire station will be constructed along Route 25, north of Route 72 on three acres of land village trustees donated to the fire district. It will be next to the River Haven multifamily subdivision now under construction.

Trustees and the fire chief contend the new station is needed because fast access to many of their ambulance and fire calls is no longer easy.

“Our current station (on Third Street) was built in 1950, the west most part of the village. That was good for then, but we’ve expanded to the east,” the chief said. “Our district goes out to South Barrington where Goebberts (farm) is. Now, to get out of our station, if we get up (Barrington Avenue) hill, we’re good. Before we do that, we have to make turns, cross the bike path and get through the older part of the village.”
