Palmerton will spend $1.2 million to construct a new three-bay fire station in the borough lot at Fifth Street and Lehigh Avenue.
By a 6-0 measure, borough council agreed on Thursday to award a contract to CC Construction Services, of Allentown, in the amount of $1,249,000. Councilwoman Holly Sell arrived just after the vote was taken.
Before council's decision, resident Keith Cebrosky asked which vehicles the borough plans to house in the new garage.
Council Vice President Jason Behler told Cebrosky "Other than construction, we haven't really talked about that."
