Bay City Fire Facilities Need Upgrades, Says Chief At City Commission Meeting

At Monday evening’s Bay City Council meeting, Fire Chief Kurt Corradi presented on the falling infrastructure of all operating Bay City Fire Stations. A

ccording to the Bay City Department of Public Safety, the average age between the stations is 59 years old. From new boilers to roof replacement, each station has numerous issues inside and out.

Chief Corradi says the aging infrastructure and forming of the budget for these repairs is the biggest challenge the Fire Station has. He reports the overall cost is a “ballpark figure of $3.5 – 4 million,” although it is difficult to fully determine the cost at this time.

The Bay City Commission requested a proposal to move forward.
