Letter to the Editor: Calling for Public Discussion on Location of a New Fire Station

~ Submitted by Peter Grey

A number of years ago when Selectmen Pierce was campaigning for his first term he informed me that just over fifty percent of the Fire Department’s responses were in the West Bedford area.

If this statement was and is still true, my question is has anyone given any thought to a satellite station in that area.  The town currently owns a parcel on Hartwell Road with a building thereon which was to be the ill-fated water treatment plant and is currently being used by the water department for storage.  The majority of surrounding towns have satellite

Stations so why not Bedford?  The time has come for a public discussion on this matter instead of handling such an important issue in executive session.
