Williamsburg fire station gets updates


If all goes well, the fire station in Williamsburg will soon be fitted with a new sink and cleaning station.

At the June 26th South Dundas council meeting, South Dundas Fire and Emergency Services chief Chris McDonough brought the request before council.

The sink and cleaning station are necessary, he reported, “for the purpose of maintenance and cleaning of Self Contained Breathing apparatus and other equipment.”

He pointed out that although a tender was advertised in local newspapers and on the township website, no bids were submitted. 

In response to the situation, McDonough suggested that council allow the “purchase of the sink and installation utilizing the low bidder from our recurring service quotations.”

There was $10,000 allotted in the 2012 budget for the update.

With no objection or comment from council, mayor Steven Byvelds approved the request, saying, “you’ve tried. Go ahead.”
