      Harrisburg Fire asks voters to approve bond to replace fire station

      HARRISBURG, Ore. -- The Harrisburg Fire Department is hoping the third time's the charm after voters turned down two previous bond measures aimed at replacing their aging fire station.


      The proposed $4.2 million bond measure would cover building costs needed to replace the structure from 1964.


      Volunteer firefighter Matt McCarl said the current 50-year-old station is structurally unsafe. Not to mention the add-ons still don't house all of their fire fighting equipment, McCarl said.


      The Harrisburg fire volunteer said the department already owns a three-acre property on the south side of town to build a new station.


      If approved, residents would see a small bump in property taxes.


      The deadline to vote is 8 pm on May 20. | Drop box locations
