County to spend $1.7M for Royal Palm Beach fire rescue stations

Palm Beach County will spend $1.7 million to purchase two fire rescue stations owned by the Village of Royal Palm Beach.

County commissioners approved an agreement to purchase the stations when they met on Tuesday.

The county, which provides fire rescue service to the village, rents the buildings for $225,000 per year and determined that it would be less expensive to purchase the stations rather than continue renting them.
