Location set for new Merrill fire station


After months of debate, the city of Merrill has chosen a location for its new fire station.

The city council voted 7-1 to build the new station on a plot of land across from the post office. That land was once home to Brickner's Car Dealership.

The city purchased the property for $250,000. Before construction on a new fire station can begin, an environmental study will take place.

Officials say if all goes well, they'll start building in the spring.
