HFPD to Sell Station Two By Tracey Schwartz The Huntley Fire Protection District has decided to sell its Station 2 located at Dean Street and Rt. 47. The decision conies after careful consideration by the fire board members of issues including the decreased frequency of train traffic through Huntley, its close proximity (1/2 mile) to Station 1, and its major function over the last three years which has primarily been storage. Station 2 was put in service in 1986. The property was purchased for between $80,000 and $100,000 according to Fire Chief Dave Veath. The fire district built the existing building. At the time the building was stubbed for bathrooms because the Village of Huntley was planning to extend water and sewer service to the property. However, the extension project has taken place yet. Veath says for the last three years Station 2 has been ba.sically used for storage of a reserve engine and a big tanker. Recently both of those vehicles have been sold. According to Veath all of the district's emergency calls have responded out of Station 1 because all firefighter bunker gear is located there. HFPD Board President Joe Gow says, "It was a good idea at the time that was never followed through." Gow says that the board wants to be proactive to the changing needs of the district. He feels that the district can sell Station 2 for over $200,000 and no longer maintain unnecessary property. Veath stated it simply,"Times have changed ... the trustees have to look at what is best as far as cost effectiveness for the district."
