A former Rockwood Electric Utility substation location will get new life with the city of Rockwood.
The substation, near Rockwood United Methodist Church on North Kingston Avenue, will be purchased by the city of Rockwood for a new fire station 2.
The city’s current station 2, also on Kingston Avenue, has been empty after flooding a few years ago.
“REU wanted to give this to us,” said Mayor Mike “Brillo” Miller. “TVA said no — it has to be fair market value.”
