The Village of White Lake, in partnership with MSA Professional Services, Inc., is marking the official start of construction on the community’s new volunteer fire station.
Ground-breaking was held on Friday for the new facility, which replaces the Village’s former fire station that suffered a collapsed roof during a large snowstorm event in March of 2019.
The new structure is designed to be approximately 10,000 square feet, over twice the size of the former footprint of approximately 4,600 square feet—a building that was constructed in 1996.
The $1.7 million project will be largely funded with the assistance of a Community Development Block Grant for Public Facilities. MSA was contracted to help the village with grant administration for the project and led the village’s application efforts for the CDBG grant in May, 2019. The village received notice of the $1 million award in July, 2019.
MSA is also leading the architectural design and engineering of the new fire station as well as water and sewer main extensions to the property.
Construction will be conducted by Bayland Buildings, Inc., of Green Bay, and is expected to be completed by the end of 2020.
