GLIDE — Glide firefighters twice offered a price tag on a new fire station to voters, and twice, it failed.
The third time, it seems, was the charm: Voters have approved a $2.5 million bond to build a fire station for the Glide Rural Fire Protection District.
The Roseburg News-Review reports the 12,020-square-foot station will double the capacity of the current 35-year-old station. The bond will cost taxpayers up to 57 cents per $1,000 assessed valuation over 25 years, according to officials.
Voters in 2010 rejected a proposal to build a slightly larger $2.95 million station. In 2008, voters turned down a proposal to build a $3.85 million station.
