Demolition of Monroe Fire Department Fire Station #5 should take place within the next 30 days.
A new state-of-the-art facility will be constructed at the site over the next several months. The project follows six years of development and strategic financial planning by the MFD.
Chief Terry Williams thanked Mayor Jamie Mayo, the Monroe City Council and the staff of the MFD for their help in achieving the goal and said the construction of a new station is all part of providing the public with quality service.
"As a fire chief, I have a responsibility to update our facilities and update our equipment so I can take care of these firefighters who are standing behind me, and so we can take care of this community that we serve," Williams said.
