Supervisors advised of financing hurdle for new Waukon fire station, reject a second offer for Makee Manor
During its regular meeting Tuesday, April 1 the Allamakee County Board of Supervisors met with Tony Baxter, Chairman of the Waukon Area Fire Protection District Board, who explained the need for the Board of Supervisors' help in financing the construction of a new fire station in Waukon.
Baxter said that the Waukon Area Fire Protection District, a 28E organization, is comprised of the City of Waukon and eight area townships. He said that the Fire Board had been working towards the construction of a new fire station for over two years and had voted to proceed with the project at a cost of $1,500,000, half of which would be paid by the City of Waukon and the other half by the townships. Baxter explained that the townships had expected to secure funding for their portion of the project cost through loans, but had recently learned that neither 28E organizations nor townships are legally authorized to borrow money directly from lending institutions.
