READING – November 4th: Today, Mayor Eddie Morán announced a groundbreaking
ceremony for the new 9th and Marion Fire Station.
“After nearly a decade of planning, designing, negotiating, contracting and funding the 9th and
Marion community will finally have its new fire station,” said Mayor Morán.
"A new fire station represents fresh beginnings and represents the opportunity for our firefighters
to better serve our residents. With this announcement, we solidify our commitment to a safer
community in the City of Reading.”
“This is truly a great day for the City of Reading and the Department of Fire and Rescue
Services," said Chief of Fire William Stoudt Jr. “I cannot thank enough Mayor Morán and his
administration along with City Council, especially Councilman Stratton Marmarou, for their
support of this project.
This station will also allow the firefighters to work in a modern station that provides for their
physical and mental well-being when not responding to calls."
The Mayor extends an invitation to State, County and Municipal Elected Officials, City
Officials, and the residents of Reading to attend the ceremony.
