Senate committee to tour Public Safety sites

 
In June, the city of Montgomery requested $1.3 million in state funding to help pay for the proposed Public Safety Facility  to be located east of the Dollar General store on Milwaukee Avenue. The project’s total is $2.6 million.
 
On October 9, the city met with the House of Representatives Capital Investment Committee while the group was traveling the area in Faribault. As part of their presentation, city officials showed a short video of the overcrowded conditions of Montgomery’s EMS equipment.
 
On Thursday, Dec. 5, Senate Capital Investment Committee members will get to see firsthand the space restrictions that plague the Montgomery Police, Fire and Ambulance Departments when they visit Montgomery. 
 
As part of the meeting, the committee will also meet with representatives of the City of Montgomery to discuss the City's request for state bonding.
 
According to Mayor Jean Keogh, future administrator, Brian Heck,  said the visit is a big deal when the committee actually comes to your town.
 
The meeting will be held at the Montgomery City Hall, beginning at 4 p.m. before the tours.
