The Granby Center Fire Department has a new parking area behind its station — thanks to the cooperation of town officials and local businesses, according to First Fire District Commissioner Peter Holmes.

“A few months ago I inquired to many local municipal highway departments about receiving road millings for our parking area,” said Holmes. “My search was successful with the Town of Granby’s town board and the highway superintendent for the Town of Granby.”

Holmes said the town’s dump trucks brought in 15 loads of road millings to create the new parking lot.

“This parking lot is an example of what community minded officials can accomplish,” said Holmes.

As the town’s dump trucks were delivering these millings, there was a lot of heavy equipment needed to level the millings. All the heavy equipment was donated by local business owners in Granby, said Holmes.

“If it weren’t for these business owners, this project would have cost thousands and would not have been done,” he added.
