Atherton Station

Atherton Fire Station is one of Milton's three fire station slated for major changes/

The Fire Station Building Committee (FSBC) on Nov. 2 voted to make changes in the way it will put the work on the town’s three fire stations out to bid as it seeks to curb an estimated $2.8 million jump in the total project costs due to unstable conditions in the construction industry.

The vote comes on the heels of the Select Board approval on Nov. 1 of a contract between the town and Vertex Companies Inc. to have the firm take over the owner’s project manager’s (OPM) role in the fire station building project.
