Excerpts from the

Elk Grove Village is ready to start work on two new fire stations. Demolition of the existing fire station at 676 Meacham Rd. is expected to begin Monday, Feb. 19. A new Fire Station No. 10 will be built at that site. Demolition of a building on recently purchased property at 700 Fargo Ave., a site which will serve as the new firehouse for firefighters from stations at Oakton and Lively and 1655 Greenleaf Ave., is expected in late February.

Both stations are expected to break ground in late March or early April and be completed in summer 2019.   The Fargo station is expected to cost $12 million. The Meacham station is expected to cost $12 million. 

Firefighters from the Meacham station will soon move into temporary trailers on the grounds of the newly renovated west side public works facility on Biesterfield Road. Firefighters at the Oakton and Greenleaf stations will remain at those houses until the new Fargo station is completed.

At the (Jan. 23 village board meeting, trustees awarded a contract for $1,008,500 for a new Pierce aerial ladder quint. The new truck would be stationed at the Fargo firehouse.
