Dexter to have virtual meeting with fire station consultant

By Seth Kinker,

During the last council meeting, city council discussed the possibility of inviting a speaker from a fire station design conference that council member Zach Michels attended in May.

Ken Newell, of Stewart-Cooper-Newell Architects, has many different presentations pertaining to station design.

A few examples of those presentations that were given to council included Hotzone Separation in Fire Stations, Designing 75-year Fire Stations, How to Build for Less, and To LEED or Not to LEED (sustainability) among others. Many of these presentation titles are topics that have come up when discussing a new fire station in Dexter.

At their July 8 meeting, council discussed bringing him to Dexter or meeting virtually, eventually settling on a virtual meeting for July 29 because the cost was less and they wanted to separate that meeting from their second facility public forum on July 31 from 6 – 8 p.m. at the Dexter library.

Timing and what presentations they wanted for the meeting were discussed during this agenda item with July 29 from 6 – 8 p.m. established as the date for the meeting.
