Mathews County BOS Negotiating For New Fire Station Property

The Mathews County Board of Supervisors is negotiating the purchase of property to build a new Mathews Volunteer Fire Department Station 1. The Gazette-Journal reports the property’s exact location was not made public but County Administrator Ramona Wilson says it is located in the downtown sanitation district and is close enough to the current station to maintain quick response times. The first fire station was built in 1937 at the same location as the current station.
