Public Safety: $1.4 Million in Bond Funding

Bond funds for public safety projects will be focused on upgrading the two fire stations in the city of Decatur. Most of the funding will go toward constructing a new fire station to replace fire station 2 in the Oakhurst business district. A community stakeholders group will work with the city on this project and community input meetings will be scheduled.

In addition to the reconstruction of fire station 2, the city will make improvements at fire station 1 on E. Trinity Place. Built in the 1950s with funds from Decatur’s last bond issue, fire station 1 needs interior renovations, including additional office and storage space, and has a number of deferred maintenance needs.
