New fire hall, new RCMP detachment on Tuesday’s agenda

Pitt Meadows residents may be interested in a big meeting set for this Tuesday, March 10 at city hall, at 7 p.m.

The special public meeting of council tackles two major topics, building a new fire hall, and building a new RCMP detachment for the city.

The design, updated cost estimates and timelines for the new fire hall will be presented at the meeting.

The new building will replace the existing fire hall which opened in 1983 and no longer meets the needs of the department, the city says on its website. Money has been set aside in the city’s savings accounts for the building which will cost about $15 million.

People also can watch the meeting online via the city’s website.
