Open house Saturday at new Albion Fire Station

Albion Fire StationAlbion Fire Department will be hosting an open house at its new fire station this Saturday, Sept. 12, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Firemen will be on hand to give tours of the new building, and refreshments will be served.

The fire department moved its equipment into the new 13,125-square-foot building in late July, 2009.

Completion of the building marks a milestone for the city that began back in May, 2006, when voters approved a city sales tax increase of one-half of one percent to finance the new fire station, as well as maintenance, new vehicles and equipment. The measure passed by a vote of 474 in favor and 259 opposed.
