Perry City Council named the street the citys new fire station is being built on to honor the namesake of its city.
At Tuesdays council meeting, City Council voted unanimously to name the street Commodore Drive and to name the fire station Davis Farm Station, after the family who donated the land for the building.
The street is named after Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry, who was a 1800s war hero.
The second Perry fire station is being constructed near Langston and Houston Lake roads. Its expected to be finished early next year. The $1.2 million project is listed on the 2006 special purpose local option sales tax projects list.
When the station is complete, city officials have said it will provide wider coverage. Firefighters currently staffed at the original station will be transferred to the new station until money for more firefighters is located, officials have said.
