06/16/08 74 W - + 14 - 7 County Commissioners Approve Recommendation to Close Western Wake Station 2

NBC 17 reports that today the Wake County Board of Commissioners voted to accept the recommendation of the Wake County Fire Commission to close Western Wake Fire Department Station 2 starting July 1, and with the Cary Fire Department commencing contracted service of the newly created Cary Suburban Fire Insurance District at that time. Guess what we thought was a done deal took some time for final approval.

Video footage of the meeting is available at http://wake.granicus.com/ViewPublisher.p... Start watching at about 3:30:27. The unanimous vote for “closure” is actually the discontinuation of county funding for Station 2. It is also noted in the meeting that four other county stations are simultaneously being evaluated for “closure,” with the county Fire-Rescue Division talking to the city of Raleigh about coverage. Recalling a prior WCFC meeting, those are Bay Leaf 3, Falls, New Hope 1, and Western Wake 1.
