MERRILL, WI (WSAU) - The official start of Merrill’s new fire station was Monday. The groundbreaking ceremony took place at the new site at 110 South Pier Street.
The new fire station will combine staff and equipment from two older stations in a central location. The present Fire Station #1 was built in 1915 and is in disrepair.
Construction is expected to begin early next month, and should be finished enough for occupancy in January 2014.
