The city of Washington’s budget for next year so far includes funding for a shed to store foam used in firefighting. The foam is for fighting certain types of fires when water is not appropriate. It’s for what amounts to large grease fires.

The cost of the shed could be shared between the city, the fireman’s association, and Iowa Renewable Energy.
