The proposal includes budgeting $3.8 million for a fourth fire station for FY 2025, which officials say is necessary due to growth. It proposes budgeting $1.5 million to purchase land in the next FY, and $3.8 million for the building and equipment in FY 2025, the report says.

City officials say a voter-approved general fund bond would be needed to pay for the facility, while a separate levy would need to be approved for staffing and operation costs.

The plan also calls to replace an engine for $1.4 million in the next FY, with another replacement engine budgeted for $1.6 million in FY 2027, the report says.
