Windom fire chief: 'It is easy to misstate facts'
In response to a recent letter, we need to make sure facts are presented accurately and in context. The fact is, the building committee looked at an addition to our current facility. The $800,000 cost mentioned was from a project that was looked at in 2005. A committee looked at the project again in 2008 at a cost of $1.9 million. We asked again in 2014 and the cost was over $2 million. And, that addition would still not meet the needs for both departments.
