Leland Town Council to vote on staffing fire station on NC 133

LELAND, NC (WWAY) — The Leland fire station that sits on NC 133 built about ten years ago may soon have some more man power.

The brand new building sat vacant for the first several years after it was first built. Town Manager David Hollis said currently, the station does not have either part-time or full time personnel residing on-site.

Next week, Leland Town Council members will vote on whether to approve about $64,600 for two part time positions.

Hollis said this proposal is a part of the town’s effort to help the fire department merge.

“So it’s a part of these discussions that we’ve been having,” Hollis said. “It’s a part of the conversation we’ve had with council about staffing that station and better response along the 133 corridor.”

Council will vote on the topic at their regular meeting next Thursday. If approved, the two part-time positions would start on April 24.
