Bids for old fire station

Three bids have been submitted to purchase the old fire station on Washington Street. Town Administrator Jim Boudreau said the bids ranged from $230,000 to $301,000 for the small, two-story wooden structure with one engine bay that sits on a 7,100-square-foot lot. Boudreau issued a request for proposals in July — with a requisite minimum bid of $230,000 — for the business-zoned property located across from the South Shore Medical Center. “I would say the building is in poor condition, so I’m not sure what the buyer will do with it,” he said. “But it’s been sitting there a long time — at least as long as I’ve been here, which is 15 years.” The structure and surrounding property are being sold in “as is” condition, so the town wouldn’t be responsible if hazardous waste is found on the site. Boudreau said he will review the bids and make a recommendation to selectmen soon.
