Description

This project provides funding for the replacement and renovation of heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) and electrical systems that are in poor and deteriorating condition at various fire stations.

Estimated Schedule

One fire station project is planned per year from FY15 through FY20.

Cost Change

Cost decrease due to technical adjustment of removing costs in Beyond 6 Years for this Level of Effort project and capitalizing prior year expenditures, partially offset by the addition of FY19 & 20.

Justification

The replacement and repair of HVAC systems at fire stations reduces the need for expensive emergency repairs and increases energy efficiency. The design of the HVAC system is unique in each facility; therefore, the scope and cost for each station varies. Current candidate projects were identified through a HVAC and electrical systems condition assessment study for fifteen fire stations in June 2007. The study recommends that HVAC and electrical systems at 15 fire stations be renovated.

Other

Six fire station projects are planned for FY15 through FY20. Seven fire station projects are planned for beyond the FY15-20 CIP.

Fiscal Note 

Debt service for this project will be financed with Consolidated Fire Tax District Funds.

Disclosures

Expenditures will continue indefinitely.
