NEW BERLIN The South New Berlin Fire Department is seeking input from the community to help determine the fate of its building.
The days on the 27-year-old building are numbered, according to department members. The department is currently facing a list of priority repairs namely roof work that are estimated to reach tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The question is whether costs of repairs are worth the investment or if the department is better off building new. Department members will hold an informational hearing at 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 24 at the South New Berlin Fire Station. Resident in the South New Berlin Fire District are encouraged to attend.
We have some structural issues that are going to need to be attended to, probably before the winter, said department member Kevin Chrstian.
