Title: Authorizing the Madison Fire Department and City Engineering to design an expanded Fire Station 14 building (20,000 SF vs. 14,000 SF) that includes a larger community room and an expanded indoor area to conduct Recruit PAT’s (Physical Ability Test), Incumbent Standards and other training evolutions.

Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution authorizes the Madison Fire Department and City Engineering to design Fire Station 14 (MUNIS Project 17451) with additional community and testing/training area totaling 6,000 square feet, resulting in a fire station of approximately 20,000 square feet with an estimated cost of $6,750,000. The 2017 adopted capital budget includes $450,000 for design and the 2018 capital improvement plan includes 5,050,000 for construction of the station. Adoption of this resolution will add $1,250,000 to the Fire Department’s 2018 capital budget request target.

Currently the Department contracts with Madison College for the Recruit Training Academy. This includes a classroom, office space and access to the training grounds. The lease is $6000/month and ends in 2018. The Department will need to renegotiate a new contract with Madison College when it expires and some savings may be realized due to the new training space at Station 14. Any operating impacts associated with the expansion are anticipated to be de minimis.
