The short ceremony was topped off by speeches from the Oakmont Fire Company President John Stretch and Fire Chief Robert J. “Mags” McGoldrick. This event brings the much anticipated building demolition a bit closer. Demolition is tentatively scheduled to begin around July 23rd through the 25th. Stay tuned throughout the summer for progress reports on the demolition and construction. Or come by and take a look in person the fire house site is located at 23 West Benedict Avenue.
