NORWICH – The third floor of the City of Norwich fire station is slated for a face lift, thanks to grant funding recently awarded through a state-run program.
According to city officials, the third floor of the fire station may finally be completed as early as spring. The presently vacant space has been largely unfinished since the city paid to have the building refurbished in the early 2000’s and the fire department moved back into the building from its temporary location on Borden Avenue in 2004.
Funding for the project comes by way of the State and Municipalities Capital Program to help cities, towns and villages across the state perform local upgrades and maintenance. State Senator Tom Libous (R-52nd Senatorial District) announced this month that he has secured $100,000 to be received by the City of Norwich through the program which will allow the city to complete renovations to the third floor.
