Spallumcheen clarifies position on fire hall

The Township of Spallumcheen is clearing up its view of the proposed Armstrong-Spallumcheen fire hall expansion project.

The township is sending a letter to the city stating it is only in favour at this time of expanding the bays at the fire hall.

“I read the minutes of our last joint council meeting and we didn’t make it clear that Spallumcheen is only in favour of the bay expansion at this time,” said Spallumcheen Coun. Christine Fraser.

Armstrong and Spallumcheen councils have discussed the merits of expanding the fire hall as a proposed new truck for the volunteers would not fit in the current hall.

The hall has asked not only for expanded bays but new shower facilities and upgrading its classroom.

Both councils voted to support seeking grants for $800,000 to help pay for the entire expansion proposal.

“It’s a large capital project,” said Fraser.

“If we receive those grants, Spallumcheen will look at doing all of the expansion.”
