Finishing touches are underway on a new headquarters that will replace a 56-year-old auditorium space, reports News Channel Nebraska.
The fire department posted to Facebook, “Join us to celebrate the newly constructed Beatrice Fire Station with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Saturday, October 23, 2021 beginning at 10:00 a.m. An open house and fire station tours will follow.”
Voters paved the way for the project with approval of an extra half-cent onto the local sales tax. A government official said the project has gone well, despite some delays that many projects have experienced during supply shortages.
Other city departments will be able to use the older fire bay space, for storage of vehicles.
