OAKLEY -- Want to rent a fire station?

The city of Oakley wants to lease its former fire station again and is accepting proposals from prospective tenants.

The facility once known as Fire Station No. 93 is at 215 2nd St.

The city has been renting out the station and adjoining property to Homeless Animal Lifeline Organization for more than a year but now has decided to see whether other users are interested as well.

The nonprofit rescue group, whose lease ends in January 2013, also can submit a proposal.

Located on an approximately 27,000-square-foot site, the building is about 4,550 square feet; 2,600 square feet of that is a garage area. The parcel has about a dozen parking stalls.

Interested parties may take a walk-through from 4 to 6 p.m. on Oct. 16. Although not mandatory, applicants are strongly encouraged to attend.

The deadline for submitting proposals is 2 p.m. Nov. 2. The City Council will review them at its Nov. 13 meeting; the council is scheduled to choose a tenant and approve the lease agreement Dec. 11.
