PENDLETON — Pendleton Public Works Director Bob Patterson reported staff is ready to recommend a construction manager/general contractor for the new fire station.
Staff will make the recommendation at the city council’s workshop Tuesday 7-8:30 p.m. at city hall, 501 S.W. Dorion Ave., according to the email from Patterson. The meeting is open to the public.
Pendleton residents in May voted for the $10 million bond to build a new fire station at the former St. Anthony Hospital site on the 1600 block of Southeast Court Avenue. The city paid more than $700,000 for architectural designs and engineering services and used the bond money to pay $27,530 for “Jaws of Life” extrication equipment and $103,714 for heart monitors.
The fire department used the new equipment to free a man in late October from a semi crash on Cabbage Hill.
