Birdseye plans fire station hearingJune 4, 2019
From Local Sources
BIRDSEYE — The Town of Birdseye has announced a public hearing dedicated to the quest to build a new fire station.
The hearing is slated for 6 p.m. Monday, June 17, at the Birdseye Fire Station, 9 W. First St.
The hearing will be similar to one earlier this year in that representatives from Universal Design Associates, Ferdinand, will be available to answer questions and attendees will have an opportunity to express their views on a recently completed fire station feasibility study.
The meeting should not last more than an hour and Birdseye is hoping as many as 100 people can turn out for the event.
The town intends to apply to the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs for a $500,000 construction grant to replace the current station next to the town’s railroad tracks. It is recommended that Birdseye construct a new station on a large, town-owned open lot where an old elementary school and gymnasium once stood. The site is south of West Third Street, across from Jake’s Auto Parts & Service.
Birdseye intends to submit a grant application later this month.
Town officials say the June 17 hearing is for anyone to attend, not just Birdseye residents.
