BRATTLEBORO—According to Town Manager Peter Elwell, construction on the renovated and expanded Central Fire Station is now complete, but townspeople will have to wait a couple of weeks longer to get a look at it.
A ribbon cutting and open house had originally been scheduled for Friday, Jan. 19. However, due to a calendar conflict, Elwell said the event has been rescheduled to be held on Friday, Feb. 9.
Elwell said the town and the Fire Department personnel “are proud of the new station and invite the public to tour the facilities, meet the firefighters, and attend the [Feb. 9] ribbon cutting ceremony.”
Town officials will make brief remarks and the ceremonial ribbon cutting will take place at 3 p.m., with an open house scheduled from 3 to 7 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.
If the weather permits, the station and surrounding grounds will be open throughout the open house. In the event of inclement weather, all activities will take place inside the station.
