New Meridian Township Fire Station Moves Forward

Posted: Updated:
(WLNS) - Despite concerns from some Okemos residents officials plan to begin clearing the corner of Okemos Road and Central Park Drive this week for the construction of a new central fire station.

Tuesday an Ingham County Circuit Court judge denied a temporary restraining order from residents who live in Autumn Park Condominiums.

Residents argue construction violates the "open meetings act by Meridian Township board members"

However the Township plans to start cleaning the site Thursday.

The debate over where the new fire station was to be built has continued for months.  

Autumn Park Condominium residents argued that building the firehouse across from their homes would disrupt their quality of life and drive down property values.
