Mt. Juliet is moving forward on a new fire station for the city’s north side with a groundbreaking held Monday.

The station will be built on just over two acres just across North Greenhill Road from Wilson County’s Green Hill High School. 

Mt. Juliet bought the property for about $200,000 from Wilson County Schools. Wilson County Director of Schools Donna Wright and Green Hill High Principal Kevin Dawson attended Monday’s groundbreaking.

The city has estimated it will cost $3 million for the new fire station that is projected to be 11,500 square feet. A timeline on when construction will start and when the station will open is still tentative.

Mt. Juliet has a fire station on the city’s south side near Providence Marketplace.
