Fire Chief Terry Johnson stated there has been a continuing issue to get hot water at the Municipal building. He noted the water and sewer pipes in the building are patch worked. “The City came up with a plan, they found the funding and now they’re going through and replacing all the plumbing for Municipal bathrooms.”
Johnson said an idea was brought to him about renovating the firefighter living area on the second floor of the Municipal building if the funding could be found. “Well the living area probably has not been touched in 20 or 30 years. And I found we had capital improvement money, I got approval, and so the firefighters are doing the work.” That is helping save money on the project.
Also this week, a back or rear entrance to the firefighter quarters on the west side of the building has been completed.
