MILLWOOD, N.Y.-- Work is underway at the long awaited Millwood Firehouse.

The fire department announced on its Facebook page that it had received a permit from the New Castle Building Department on Aug. 27.

Site work began on Aug. 30, according to the Facebook page. Currently, a path is being carved out and vegetation is being cleared.

The 9-acre 18,000 square foot site is located at 100 Millwood Road. Millwood's current firehouse at 60 Millwood Road was built in the 1920s.

Millwood Fire District voters approved a bond referendum in 2011 for up to $13.95 million in spending for the new firehouse.

The commissioners board said the fire department expects to move to its new home on the fire company’s original firehouse’s 90th anniversary.

Construction is expected to be completed by late fall 2014.
