Former fire company to become winemaking facility
A former fire company in Palmerton will be converted into a winemaking facility and storage units.
Borough council on Thursday unanimously approved the use for the building at 855 Princeton Ave.
The property is the former West End Fire Company No. 2 of Palmerton, which was sold. The property transfer was from the West End Fire Company No. 2 of Palmerton, property on Princeton Avenue, to Bard Di LLC, 4518 Joshua Lane, Walnutport, $165,000.
In 2018, the West End Fire Company No. 2 withdrew from the Palmerton Fire Department, meaning all fire response from West End Fire Company No. 2 in Palmerton was halted at that time.
The borough has continued to provide all emergency services out of the municipal fire station.
