Upgrades to the Sperling Fire Hall are expected to begin this fall.
RM of Morris Reeve Ralph Groening commented on the project.
"It involves an expansion of an aging fire hall. Really, we could make the argument that you need a new hall. [We] simply do not have the financial capacity to do that at this point but it will be an expansion of the facility to give our 14 volunteer firefighters in the community of Sperling a little bit more room and the ability to do some of their training and to do the kind of preparations that they need to do in order to be an effective and efficient fire department."
Groening says the total cost of the project is between $150,000 and $200,000.
