Fire station opens

Monroe County Fire Rescue Station 8 on Stock Island will hold its opening ceremony at 12:30 p.m. April 16.

In October 2012, county officials broke ground on the new $3.5 million station on the four lots surrounding the current station at the corner of MacDonald and Maloney avenues. A $1.84 million renovation of the station on Conch Key was completed in September 2012.

The county refurbished the $3.2 million Big Pine Key station in 2009.
