8/4/14–The Wilmington City Council is expected to give approve to the new Cinema Drive Fire Station.
The $3.4 million dollar project will replace the existing fire stations on Princess Place Drive and Wallace Drive.
It’s part of an overall plan to revamp the Wilmington Fire Department.
The number of fire stations in Wilmington will go from 11 to 9.
Officials say the re-structuring will allow the department to be more efficient and better equipped to handle emergencies.
The city council will take up the matter at its meeting Tuesday night at 6pm at City Hall.
