Marco Island City Council on Monday unanimously approved documents that estimate it will cost the city approximately $22.9 million to replace Fire Station 50 and renovate Veterans’ Community Park. 

The city would spend $12.5 million to replace the fire station with a new station and an emergency center, and $10.4 million to renovate the park.

The new fire station will be approximately 22,366 square feet with administrative offices, meeting rooms, sleeping quarters and bays for the equipment, according to a city staff report.
