SYLVANIA TOWNSHIP, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Sylvania Township trustees awarded a bit to a Fremont contractor to build a new fire station.

The township decided the new Fire Station One would be built on the site of the old station: Monroe Street downtown.

"This was the voters' choice and we're doing the best possible thing," said Trustee John Jennewine. "It will be a great addition to the township and the city."

The construction budget is set at just under $2 million.

Demolition of the old fire station will begin later this month, with completion of the new station targeted for the beginning of November.
