Lakeland Fire Station # 1 is open! In a ceremony today, Shelby County Mayor AC Wharton, Lakeland Mayor Scott Carmichael and Vice Mayor Mark Hartz officially opened the Fire Station.
Lakeland Fire Station # 1 will be staffed by the Shelby County Fire Department in a joint agreement which will benefit both the City of Lakeland and the Shelby County Fire Department.
Special thanks to Lakeland Public Works Director Chris Masin who coordinated the tasks that make a successful project from the bid opening to the final inspection! Chris spent and lot of time and effort in insuring that the project was successful.
Also, a special thanks to Lakeland Administrative Assistant Theresa Meyer, who coordinated the Grand Opening of Lakeland Fire Station # 1!
Several nearby residents made a point of "intermodal" transportation when they drove their golf carts over to the Grand Opening!
