New Fire Station in Catawba County

Other news in Sherrills Ford from the Charlotte Observer:

The Sherrills Ford Volunteer Fire Department plans to build a new fire station in the area of Catawba County it will begin serving this summer.

Sherrills Ford Fire Chief Keith Bost said his department wants to build a $600,000 station on 2.53 acres off Catawba Burris Road in Sherrills Ford.

The move follows a dispute between the Denver Volunteer Fire Department and Catawba County officials after the county announced plans to transfer Denver's fire coverage in two areas to the Sherrills Ford department.

County officials said the change would increase response times and lower the homeowner insurance ratings for residents in those areas.

To continue services in the remaining portion of Catawba County it covers, the Denver department asked the county to levy the same fire tax rate pitched for Lincoln County. The county declined the proposal, and Denver Fire Chief James Flynn said the department would stop service to Catawba County on June 30. Lena Warmack
