San Lorenzo's fire station will get its first fresh coat of paint in about 15 years this month, compliments of the San Lorenzo Village Homes Association.
The home association owns the building, just 85 feet away from its offices, and leases it to the Alameda County Fire Department which operates Station 22.
On Tuesday, association board members picked Oakland contractor MB Jessee for the job that will cost $6,350 for the exterior, and $8,626 for the interior. Fire officials will pick the colors.
"We are being good landlords, and we have been doing repairs to the firehouse," said association administrator Susan Kleebauer. The HVAC system and a leaky gas line was also fixed in the past month, she said.
The station's lease was extended for two years, effective July 1. Plans to rebuild the station are on hold until the county can find funding.
