I refer to Mr. Willem Brachel’s recent letter questioning the proposed location of a fire hall and ambulance station on a portion of the Sidney Elementary School property.
In my opinion, I cannot think of a better location to serve the needs of the residents of Sidney. This site offers easy access to the bulk of the town and is probably the most cost efficient piece of property with existing infrastructure already in place.
Yes, it would be next door to the school and a condominium complex. This is an emergency services building, not a structure that would have adverse affects on school children.
I challenge anyone to come up with a location in the town that would not have some impact on residences. Suggest a better site and you may be able to change my mind.
The men and women who serve our town’s emergency needs deserve a modern safe building.
