PLYMOUTH – Almost ten years after plans fell through for a joint Plymouth volunteer firehouse and town hall, Monday members of the town board said they’re reconsidering that idea.
In 1998, the town board opted out of creating offices at what is now solely the Plymouth Fire District Volunteer Department, located on state Rt. 23.
Now, current board members agree the firehouse is probably the most cost effective site on which to build new town offices.
“We need our own facilities,” said Councilman Robert Baker. “Adding on to here is another way to save money.”
The town board already uses the firehouse’s community room for its monthly meetings. Town justices also hold court there. The space does not have a spot for the town clerk Marie N. Whaley, who works out of her home.
