Chisholm Moves Forward with Public Service Facility Plans

Two Developers will Present Plans to the Chisholm City Council on Wednesday, March 29

CHISHOLM, Minn. – A new Public Service Building could be coming to the City of Chisholm within the next year.

Two developers, Krause-Anderson and SEH, have both submitted proposals for the City’s new building, and will be interviewed by the Chisholm City Council on Wednesday, March 29.

Since 1907, the City has used the same building to house their police and fire departments.

Last year, an investment of $65,000 was put into the floor of the aging structure.

“That building has served its useful purpose and we need to get the men and women protecting the City and those surrounding townships some new facilities,” said Mayor Todd Scaia.

The City has yet to figure out funding for the new facility, but Scaia says taxpayer dollars will help with the pricetag.

“Hopefully we’ll get some help from the IRRRB. We have talked to our Congressional delegation about maybe some funding from the emergency management area for the fire hall and safety center,” said Scaia.

The Mayor is optimistic the Council will decide on a developer, work out funding, and break ground on the project in 2017. He says a 2018 completion date would be ideal.
