Powell River residents to vote on new proposed fire hall during general election

Residents are being asked if they are in favour of the City of Powell River borrowing as much as $7,500,000 for a new fire hall and emergency services building.

Voters will be able to make their voice heard regarding the facility during the general election on Oct. 15.

The proposed building would be built at 7160 Duncan Street.

The property owners in the area Powell River Fire Rescue serves would finance the facility through property taxes.

A property owner with a home valued at $535,928 would be expected to pay around $82 annually for 20 years.

The City of Powell River would work to lower the borrowing amount by applying for grants or reallocating existing finances.

The current fire hall hasn’t seen any structural or seismic upgrades since it was constructed in 1959.
