Bypass Fire Station
FISCAL YEAR 2024 BUDGET
Project Name: Bypass Fire Station Replacement
Department: Public Works Facilities Development
Start Date: 7/01/2023
End Date: 6/30/2025
The design/build costs for the Bypass Fire Station Replacement were fully funded with the FY 23 CIP budget. Due to inflation, an increase in dormitory room numbers, and some other changes relating to the layout and design from the original design this funding is being provided to cover the additional furniture, fixture and equipment projected costs.
These funds are earmarked in FY 25 for this anticipated expense. Presently there are no funding sources to fund the higher costs for the equipment/supplies that will be needed to outfit the new station. In the meantime, the fire department will continue to its search for grants or other funding opportunities to help offset these costs.

PROJECT OBJECTIVES / STATUS:
Objective: To provide additional funding for the furniture, fixtures and equipment for the new Bypass Fire Station projected to increase based on inflation and design changes.
Limited items from the existing station can be moved or re-used in the new fire station largely because the existing station is without some of the more modern-day gear and equipment that will now be needed in the new station such as gear racks, equipment racks, supply room storage, station alerting system, turnout gear extractor, washers/dryers, etc.
Operating impacts to be determined in the future.
