The long-awaited $886,000 to station could break ground this week.
Hatboro Borough Manager Tommy Ryan said Tuesday that the contractor, , is waiting for confirmation of where utility lines are buried before beginning construction on the 2-story, 2,500-square-foot expansion. Work is expected to continue through mid-September, Ryan said.
Since the existing building will be expanded onto part of the back parking lot, vehicles will not be able to be parked there, officials have said. Ryan said fire officials have been working with nearby to see if the community could accommodate vehicles for firefighters who drive to the fire station for emergency response.
The borough had discussed the possibility of bagging the meters on Byberry Road so firefighters could park there, but Ryan said that option is no longer being considered.
