They’re about to break ground on a new Public Safety Center in Lebanon.
“This facility will be effectively a third fire station for the city of Lebanon. We’ve had a lot of growth on the west side of town and we’ve been working out of the same two fire stations since the 70’s…so it was time to add a 3rd one.”
Derek Gean with the City of Lebanon tells KRMS News the new center will become a 9-1-1 dispatch center later on.
He also says voters approved of the $2.7 million dollar price tag in 2018.
The groundbreaking is scheduled for Tuesday, February 2nd at 11 am at 1300 Ivey Lane.
