A new home for the Canoga Fire Department is moving closer to reality.
The company will accept bids for general construction, heating, ventilating and air conditioning, plumbing, and electrical work related to the construction of a 100-by-100-foot fire station at 3576 Route 89 until noon March 27. Bids can be dropped off at the current fire station.
The bids will be opened and read aloud at 12:05 p.m. March 27, with a decision on awarding the four contracts to follow.
The new station will include truck bays, offices, restrooms, an assembly area, a kitchen, and storage areas. It will be built behind the existing, 71-year-old structure that will be demolished by members of the fire department to save money.
Bid documents are available from the Canoga Fire Department. Specifications have been prepared by engineer Jason McCormick of Geneva.
The department began raising money for the new firehouse in 2016. A state grant will pay about 70 percent of the cost.
