Western Fire Company project revealed

The design for the proposed Western Salisbury Volunteer Fire Company station drew positive responses from Salisbury Township officials.

No one seemed more pleased than representatives of Western Salisbury Fire Company when artist’s renderings of the new building were shown during a township meeting.

The meeting may be the last one for township commissioners in the near future because of concerns about the coronavirus pandemic, which has forced township officials to cancel the March 26 meeting.
