New Fire Station Coming to Tolono

Updated: Friday, June 13 2014, 11:29 AM CDT

TOLONO -- A new fire station will soon be up and running in the village of Tolono. It's taken years, but the process is finally underway.

The department is receiving $850,000 from the village.

The price tag for building the station close to $1.1 million.

But despite a shortage of funds, fire officials say they are not discouraged.

"This has been a dream for a lot of years now. I know probably ten or fifteen, and to see this dream become a reality has everyone very, very excited."

Construction is scheduled to state later this summer.

The new station will be aboue three times as big as the current and give firefighters plenty of room to navigate when a call comes in.

Hayden says they are currently tripping over each other due to the small space.

The new station will also contain a training room.
