Work on new Coweta Fire HQ to begin

The Coweta County Commission on Feb. 16 voted unanimously to confirm the execution of the construction agreement for the county’s new fire station #1 on Turkey Creek Road.

“The bid came in at $2,543,288,” County Administrator Theron Gay said of the contract that had been awarded in January. “That’s a really good price and we’re very pleased with it.”

Construction of the new headquarters of the Coweta County Fire Department by Carrollton-based W.O. Kilgore Construction Company is scheduled for substantial completion within 360 days, according to the contract document.
