City of Moorhead in negotiations to purchase land for new fire station

(Fargo, ND) -- Plans are moving forward to build a new fire station in the City of Moorhead. 

"Station 1 is going to stay. We're still working with MNDOT on how that solution is going to be and we're in negotiations for land for Station 3 with developers in the area and those plans are moving forward and we expect some more comprehensive plans when the fire chief selection process is done in the next 30 to 45 days or so when we have a new head of the department on board by the first of January," said Interim Fire Chief Jeff Wallin. He did not say when groundbreaking for the new station might happen. 

Wallin could be named the new fire chief, saying he was interviewing with city officials for the fire chief position. He spoke about plans for the new station while appearing on The Coffee Club with Ronnie and Jenae on WDAY.
