Fire and rescue officials in Greenville hope the city will approve the funds for a new station.
Battalion Chief Shannon Terry says right now, Greenville-Fire Rescue has six stations spread throughout the city.
There is no station on Firetower Road. Terry says the number of people living and working along the road has increased, and one is needed there to keep response time down.
Fire-rescue will request funding from city council on Monday. They'll seek $140,000 for design, $3.4 million to build it and $448,000 a year to staff and operate it.
