Truckee fire district files minor-use permit with town for Glenshire station upgrade

TRUCKEE, Calif. and#8212; The fire district submitted permits on Tuesday with the town of Truckee for its temporary Glenshire fire station after debating the need for those permits more than a month ago.

With plans under way to renovate its Glenshire fire station, the Truckee Fire Protection District temporarily moved staff and equipment to an old water company building owned by the Truckee Donner Public Utility District. However, the town said the fire district didnand#8217;t pull the necessary permits to do so, and red tagged the building, issuing a stop work order at the end of April.

Since, the town and fire district worked together to resolve the issue, according to comments from officials from both districts in a previous Sierra Sun story.

On Tuesday, Town Manager Tony Lashbrook said the minor use and building permit applications were submitted June 8.

and#8220;Staff is going to process and expedite those permits as much as possible,and#8221; Lashbrook said.

Fire Chief Bryce Keller was not available to comment for this story, as he is out of town on vacation.

Typically permits can take weeks to months to process, Lashbrook said, and any permits filed do have to go before the zoning administrator for a public hearing.

In early April, the fire district awarded a $1.463 million contract to expand the Glenshire station to house more people and equipment.

The district planned in late 2009 to relocate operations during construction, which began this spring, to the Glenshire Mutual Water Building at 14630 Glenshire Drive.
