Aston Township won a $1 million state grant to renovate and expand the Aston Township Fire Department’s Green Ridge Fire House on Dutton Mill Road.

I wonder if this is the same grant Chester was seeking when, then candidate, Mayor Thaddeus Kirkland said he was getting a grant to build a new firehouse in Chester which will include a ballroom.

Since a couple Aston fire departments merged, they are now going to expand the firehouse with extra bays, office space, a meeting room, storage space, a recreation room, but no ball room.

Maybe that was the difference maker.
