WL celebrates opening of new fire station
The new West Lafayette fire station number three is officially open, after officials held a ribbon-cutting this morning.
It is located on Kalberer Road near Salisbury Street.
Fire station number three has been located in a converted Parks and Recreation building since 2007.
Chief Tim Heath says the new building will help firefighters provide better service to the community.
The land for the facility was donated to the city by the Purdue Research Foundation.
The estimated cost of the project was roughly $2.9-million.
City officials say not only did the facility open on time, it also came in about $25,000 under budget.
