Wilton Ambulance Service bay may see renovations

WILTON – The Wilton Ambulance Service bay could get some needed renovations, thanks to a grateful resident.

A local contractor wants to donate cabinets and counter top to the service, Director Gary Zirpolo told the selectmen on March 9, a resident who wants “to return something to us.”

A wall would be removed and replaced with a peninsula, he said, “a place where people can sit and eat lunch more comfortably.”

The cabinet came from a renovation job, he said, “and is in good shape. He will donate his time.”

An electrician has agreed to donate his time as well.

The ambulance crew would do the demolition. Because the wall to be removed is not load-bearing, the building inspector has said that a permit is not required.

Selectmen had no problems with the idea but, because the building is not owned by the town but by the Wilton-Lyndeborough-Temple Ambulance Association, their approval for the renovations will need to in writing and filed with the town.

Zirpolo said he would meet with the Association.
