building capital project. In April 2008, City Council awarded Bid No.1816-08 to M.W. Mitchell
Construction & Development, Inc., to build the new fire station and administration building.
Completion of this public safety capital project is scheduled for early 2009.

in accordance with established city policy. The successful purchaser will not be permitted to
