Hyannis Fire Station Building Committee Expands

hyannis fire stationHYANNIS – Officials with the Hyannis Fire District are not giving up their pursuit of a new Hyannis Fire Station.

Twice plans have failed to meet the required two-third majority from voters, with opponents calling the proposed 19 million dollar facility too expensive.

Project Manager Paul Griffin feels communication with the community has been the issue, and said technical issues presented a problem at the last vote.

“The biggest problem was the sound system wasn’t working. All the people from a third up all the way to the stage, including the people on the stage, couldn’t hear the questions. We kept on getting such a bad echo, nobody understand what was happening.”

Four members of the civic association have been added to the building committee. They will meet in September to discuss the matter.

“Having these four other folks on the committee has certainly enlightened us as to what their confusion was on all the information. It’s kind of helped us to do a better job,” Griffin said
