Minden Hills will break ground Friday on its new fire hall along Highway 35.

The new fire hall will be close to the county’s paramedic services building.

At a council meeting in the spring, Reeve Brent Devolin said the fire station would be paid for without council having to dip into reserves.

With a surplus for the past year, the township can finance the project without having to borrow money.

The total cost is budgeted at $1.9 million.

The ground breaking will be Friday at 10:00 a.m.
