Fire department remodel enters planning stages

By  | 

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) - The Twin Falls City Council approved the next step toward a fire station remodel at their meeting Monday.

In July the city council approved the fire department developing a contract with Pivot North Architecture Firm to do a needs analysis for a fire department remodel.

Monday they brought that contract and a representative from the firm to present to the council.

If approved Pivot North would be hired to go through each station and decide if they could be remodeled, or if a new station is needed.

They would also look at other stations to find the best ways to update the spaces, but this contract doesn't mean any renovation will start.

"This is really no commitment to do anything with any of the fire stations, it's simply the first step to master plan and program for your facilities," said Clint Sievers from Pivot North.

The contract will cost the city $236,360.

According to city official Mitch Humble the entire funding for the contract would be paid for by city impact fees specifically set aside for fire department use.

He said these are not taxpayer dollars.

The contract was approved by the council 5-0.
