Fire station plans

Gloucester Ruritan Club president Lou Serio, at left, presented Lewis Horsley the club mug for his presentation at the group’s March meeting at Olivia’s in the Village. Lewis, treasurer of Gloucester Volunteer Fire and Rescue Squad, Inc., as well as chairman of its building committee, gave details of the feasibility study that led to the decision to purchase the Booker property as opposed to remodeling the current Station 1 on Main Street. The new station will be better equipped and more accessible to the majority of Gloucester residents than on Route 17. The station paid for the study as well as architectural drawings in the hope that the county will help fund the approximately $10 million construction cost. GVFRS hopes to begin breaking ground in about three years.
