There was a discussion and presentation on the Fire Station and Street Department campus. The location will be on the corner of Broadway and Barachel Drive. There is potential for a signalized intersection here due to the fire trucks pulling in and out. This will sit on a 20 acre parcel and be on a continuation of Barachel Drive. Their next steps will be looking at bond financing, getting approval, and construction designs. If all stays on track, construction would begin in January or February of 2023.
