Ground has officially been broken on the new Washington fire station. A groundbreaking ceremony was held Wednesday. The new fire station is being constructed just south of the current building, which also houses City Hall and the police department. The current building will be refurbished to only hold City Hall and the police department, giving more space to all three entities.

In August, the City Council awarded the construction contract for the fire station to Bushong Construction for $2,454,000. That bid was about $100,000 under the estimated cost. The building was designed by Design Alliance, who will also be designing the remodel of the current building.
