At a meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 8, the Beckley City Council passed the first reading of an ordinance authorizing the sale of the old Fire Station 3 located at 1102 N. Eisenhower Drive.
According to council member Cody Reedy, the property was auctioned to Jeremy Dudding on Dec. 3 for $575,000.
The council did not know Dudding’s connection to the building or what he plans to do with the space. The only information they were provided with is that he was approved to make the purchase financially.
The metal building that served as Station 3 for 46 years has been unused since September, following the Beckley Fire Department’s move to their new station on Industrial Drive.
The ordinance will have a second reading at the council’s next meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 22.
