After years of study, the town of Minocqua will have a new fire station to replace its main station in use since the early 1970s. At a special meeting of town electors Thursday attended by several Minocqua firefighters, voters approved the station's construction, 63-0, on land the town purchased next to the Minocqua chamber of commerce office last fall. The structure is to cost no more than $3.4 million and town officials are hopeful the bids come in less than that. The $3.4 million figure doesn't include the $375,000 the town paid for the four acres the station will sit on, four acres Minocqua fire chief Andy Petrowski said could be used for other town buildings in another 10 to 15 years if that was the way the town board chose to go.
