Section D CLASSIFIEDS PUBLIC NOTICES SERVICE DIRECTORY Ia .ree lrez March 31, 2010, Page 1D i I i On Saturday afternoon, locals got a chance to tour the new Buda Fire Station east of IH-35 on FM 2001. I Prepared for fire PHOTOS BY JF.N BIUNDO ! Buda's eastside gets new ifire station BY JEN BIUNDO Buda Fire Department Lieutenant Daniel Baum, Driver Daniel Hernandez and Captain Gary Langshaw prepare to hoist the flag over the new fire station. [ Hays County Emergency Service District #8 President Jim Weatherford and past board member Mike Huckaby uncouple the hose on the new station, the firefighter version of cutting the red ribbon. The Buda Fire Depart- ment cut the ribbon - ac- tually, make that uncou- pled the hose - on their third fire station east of Buda in the Sunfield development Saturday afternoon. "This is your station," Fire Chief Clay Huckaby told the crowd gathered to celebrate the event. "You're welcome here at any time." Attendees at the cer- emony toured the new station, as youngsters climbed on gleaming fire trucks and firefighters served up lunch to the crowd. The 8,200 square foot station was designed by the Round Rock-based Spencer Godfrey Archi- tects and constructed by the firm Braun & Butler, of Austin. Total costs were $1.67 million. "This is what you're paying for - top notch service in the Buda area," Huckaby said. The facility shares a design with another newly-constructed sta- tion on the west side of the city next to the Buda Sportsplex. Due in part to the con- struction of the new sta- tions, Buda's Insurance Services Office rating will jump from a 7 to a 3, ef- fective this June, with 10 being the worst possible rating and 1 being the best. That may translate into a 15 percent drop in homeowners' insurance rates and a 33 percent drop in commercial rates for local property owners later in the year.
