Katy city officials are preparing to sell bonds to pay for a new fire station (as seen in accompanying artist’s rendering) to serve residents and businesses south of Interstate 10. Voters approved a $5 million bond proposal in November to pay for capital improvements, including a new fire station.
The new facility will feature three apparatus bays and an additional apparatus area, dormitory for fire and emergency medical services personnel, a kitchen, dining room and living area, a fitness and exercise room and a training tower, noted City Administrator Byron Hebert.
Construction on the city’s second fire station should begin in March or April, Hebert said. The timing is right to sell bonds as interest rates are low and the city’s credit rating was just upgraded, Hebert noted.
