TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - The City of Tupelo is looking into the possibility of relocating one of its fire stations.
Fire station 2, which is 62 years old, has needed more and more maintenance over the years, according to Fire Chief Thomas Walker.
Walker spoke with WTVA back in September about the plan to tear down the station and rebuild it on the same property.
Now the department is looking into moving it to an empty lot on the corner of Clayton Avenue and Blair Street.
"That is going to save hundreds of thousands of dollars right there," Walker said. "That would be money that we could put back into the fire station so that we can make a classroom bigger for training."
Walker is taking into consideration the noise it could cause in the neighborhood.
