Sandy Springs sets meeting on new fire station

Sandy Springs city officials invite the public to a community meeting later this month to discuss the possible construction of a new fire station serving the Panhandle area at the northeast end of town.

The meeting is to start at 6:30 p.m., March 27, at City Hall, Building 500, 7840 Roswell Road. A formal presentation by Sandy Springs Fire Chief Keith Sanders will be followed by a question-and-answer session.

The purpose of the new station would be to improve fire safety service in the area, officials said.

The Sandy Springs Panhandle is generally bounded by the Chattahoochee River on the north, Dunwoody Club Drive and the Dunwoody city limits-DeKalb County line on the south, and Holcomb Bridge Road on the east.
