Fire Station Renovation Cost

Aldermen are set to discuss a proposed increase of $50,000 in 2012 capital improvement fund expenditures, some of which will include costs for the recent renovations at the fire house located at Mason and Clayton roads.  As previously reported by Patch, renovations began on the fire station in June after the city of Town and Country approved the Fire Station 2 renovation project for $853,400. The total cost of the project is reportedly coming in at $855,000. Fire crews moved back into the station in November. 

Also Monday, aldermen are considering allocating an additional $3,000 in expenditures for other capital improvements for the city that are unrelated to the firehouse. That funding is for building maintenance costs throughout the city.

New School Architectural Review

Raintree Learning Community, As previously reported by Patch, aldermen approved a preliminary site plan in September for the school to build at 2000 to 2016 Amonte Drive in Town and Country. The school's owners plan to have the new school open in Town and Country for the 2013-2014 school year, but are not sure when construction will begin.
