Tyrone buys old county fire station


An agreement between Fayette County and Tyrone was reached Oct. 25, resulting in Tyrone purchasing the old fire station on Senoia Road for $5,000

Fayette County commissioners at the Oct. 25 meeting agreed to the sale.

The old fire station on Senoia Road is located near Shamrock Park and experienced significant septic system issues for a number of years.

Asked about future plans for the station, Mayor Eric Dial said there are no immediate plans for the old fire station.

Dial said the town is seeking the flexibility to make decisions on the enhancement of the downtown area.

The county now operates a larger fire station at Ga. Highway 74 and Jenkins Road.
