“I have some amazing news,” Ontario Fire Chief Terry Leighton told members of the Ontario City Council at their meeting on Sept. 27. After passing out information packets to each member, he explained that Oregon State Fire Marshal’s Office is granting Ontario $328,000 for its new public safety training center. This means that the city of Ontario will be saving some of the money that was budgeted for 2022-23 to build out the center. The council dedicated $182,500 from the American Rescue Plan Act to get the work done with the caveat that other entities pitch in funding. And many who already have will be getting paid back, the chief said. In a walk-through of the facility with the newspaper in September, Leighton discussed the layout and goals for future use of the facility, stating “I’m so excited to see all this happen.”
