The groundbreaking for the $5.9 million project is planned for a fire station, reports MLive.com.
The current fire station has three bays, while the new station will have five double bays. The planning for the station started in 2012.
When the department moved into the station in 1974, no one expected the need to fit a 105-foot aerial truck.
The fire station will have modern features like a decontamination room, industrial washers for the gear and space to clean the air packs.
The department hopes to buy a water rescue boat after the move into the new space.
