Southern Door Ambulance Garage Project Moves Forward

The effort to build a new Door County ambulance station in Brussels took another step forward as a result of action taken by the Door County Board Tuesday morning. Supervisors agreed to a funding mechanism to pay for the facility that would be part of a firehouse constructed for the Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Department. Prior to a referendum involving all three southern door towns, the county pledged to finance its portion of the facility if residents supported the fire department’s $2.8 million proposal, which they did. Supervisors officially made good on their pledge to build the ambulance garage during their meeting Tuesday and decided to borrow $800,000 next year to cover the building costs and other work planned. The resolution essentially says the borrowing will reimburse the county for dollars expended as the project moves along. As things stand now, plans for the ambulance garage are expected to be available in the fall with bidding on the county’s portion of the building projected for next year.
