The Hennessey Fire Station is about to change in a big way. They have been saving up County Sales tax funds for about 13 years getting ready for this remodel and addition. 100% of this work is being done with county sales tax money, no town funds will be used.
The plan is to completely demo the south end of the building and expand it in all directions, and add a second floor. Over the past few weeks, the Hennessey town crew has been helping the firefighters move everything out of the offices and meeting room getting ready for the demo. The building will be expanded to the south up to the driveway next to the Library, to the west, and to the east. The long-term plan is to purchase a ladder truck that will fit in the newly expanded building. Construction will start this week and will take about a year to complete.
