Palmerton will accept bids for the construction of its new fire station, which it hopes will be ready by early fall.
Bids for the three-bay station, which will be located in the borough lot at Fifth Street and Lehigh Avenue, are due to the borough by 2 p.m. Monday, April 8.
Borough manager Rodger Danielson said borough council will likely discuss the bids when it meets at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 11. A bid award could be made at that time.
"Already, we've seen quite a bit of interest," Danielson said. "We're hoping we get some good, competitive, bids."
