Tomorrow, September 20, 2012, the City of University City will be holding a Groundbreaking Ceremony for the new Fire House at 863 Westgate Avenue at 10:00 am. The estimated cost for the project is $3.3 Million. This firehouse is being built in part by a grant awarded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, Assistance to Firefighters Station Construction Grants with rest of the funds allocated by the University City City Council and the lot leased to us from Washington University St. Louis. We are all excited to be moving our project forward.
The building construction is scheduled to start within the next couple of weeks.
