Voters in the town of Bristol, Vermont, are planning to vote on a plan for a new fire station.

The vote, scheduled Tuesday, is on a $3.19 million, 30-year bond to build a new fire station and buy 9 acres.

Bristol Town Administrator Therese Kirby told Vermont Public Radio this is the third time the town has considered a plan to replace the aging fire station, which an engineering study found as unusable.

If the bond measure passes, the town plans to break ground on the fire station as soon at the 30-day window to rescind the vote expires.
