Gladbrook Alive And Growing-Fire Station and Ambulance Building Fund Raising takes another jump, Tops $580,000

July 18, 2013
Northern-Sun Print

There was a lot of good conversation during Corn Carnival regarding the new Fire Station and Ambulance Building project and the funding drive took another great jump the past two weeks. We can report the project has pledges of over $580,000 toward the project goal of $800,000. This is truly a community that is alive and growing. We are well on our way to develop another reason to live and invest in the Gladbrook Community. There were a lot of mid-level pledges that gave the effort a nice boost during and after Corn Carnival. All donors will be recognized in the Gladbrook City Centre.

A site for the new building has been selected next to the water tower south of Highway 96. The proximity to the new 150,000 gallon water tower will make filling tanker trucks fast and efficient, saving valuable time in an emergency. The property has now been purchased and the site will soon be cleared making room for the new facility.

With a continued successful fund drive, it is anticipated that construction will begin the Summer/Fall of 2014 with the building enclosed before Christmas 2014. Pledge forms can be picked up at Gladbrook City Hall. The project is accepting 3 year pledges with payments in December 2013, December 2014 and January 2015. All contributions will go through the Gladbrook Community Foundation and are tax deductible. If you have any questions regarding the project contact any of the Gladbrook Firemen or Mayor Keith Sash.
