How much is this going to cost?

The estimated cost is $8,006,250. This cost includes both the new 10,600-square-foot station and a fire training tower. Cost estimates for the new station are around $7,000,000. The city plans to use general obligation bonds as the primary funding source to pay for the cost of the station. Because a bond is repaid using property tax levy funds, 60% of voters would need to approve the question on the ballot on November 7 in order for the city to be able to take on the debt to build the new station.
