The renovations to the Bradford station included a new boiler, roof, floors and cooking area. The city used jail prisoners on a work program release and a donation from Lowe’s store to paint the building for just $567, DeNaro said.
The Bradford station is the only one in the city’s Bradford section, so it is considered a key to protecting that part of the city, which is south of the Merrimack River.
Fiorentini said the city will also make repairs to the Water Street and High Street fire stations. The Water Street station has problems with its windows, boiler, roof and ventilation system, the mayor said. The High Street station has issues with its roof, he said.
