Union Township is expanding a fire station near Eastgate Mall for $1.3 million. The township got a $259,500 capital safety grant from the Ohio Development Services Agency to offset some of the cost of work to be done on Station No. 49 at 718 Old State Route 74.

“We are adding an additional bay for a ladder truck to service the high-rise buildings and hotels in the area,” said John McGraw, chairman of the Union Township Board of Trustees.
