The Glasgow City Council voted Monday to allow the Long Run Fire Department to proceed with plans to build a new building on the city land they already occupy on Lasar Drive. They must bring their plans in for approval and follow state building codes and city ordinances, according to City Clerk Stacey Amundson.
She said no timeline for the project was mentioned. It will be built in phases as Long Run receives money from Valley County.
Long Run can tear down an old building on the property to make room for the new fire hall addition if the county commissioners want to pay for it, Amundson said.
Mayor Dan Carney was given approval to sign the water supply agreement between the city and Dry Prairie Rural Water. The city will sell up to 75,000 gallons per day to Dry Prairie, to supply customers west of Glasgow while Dry Prairie completes its pipelines.
The arrangement benefits the city because Dry Prairie will pay for the connections, providing the city with an alternate water source if it is needed in the future.
Century Paving should begin laying asphalt on Hillside Drive by the end of next week. The street has been dug up for months to replace old water main pipes.
Three firefighters were added to the Glasgow Fire Department following completion of their probation. They are Randy Isakson, Michael Pederson and Robert Hansen.
Pete Pederson was re-appointed for another three-year term on the Glasgow Police Commission.
