Marion to break ground on new fire station next week


MARION, IOWA - The city of Marion will break ground on its new fire station next week.

The town's population has doubled in the last 30 years and the fire department hopes this third station will keep response times low.

The new fire station and headquarters on Tower Terrace Road will become station number 1, acting as the department's new headquarters.

The new station is expected to be finished by Oct. 2020.

City leaders will hold that groundbreaking ceremony Sept. 11.
