Folks in Ecca were split on how to move forward with the Ecca Volunteer Fire Department. The push back has led to the topic being a focal point at Tuesday night's meeting. It was a call to vote to either accept or reject how to fund a proposed building for a new Ecca fire station. The department has been raising money for a new fire station and a community center for the last 17 years, and now the community is split on where the department should build the new station. Here is where it may get confusing. The proposed building site was actually donated to the department on one condition. If the land is being used for anything other than a fire station, it will fall back to the heirs. "We've already started construction here. We've had this underway for quite some time," Ecca Volunteer Fire Chief Gary Young said.
