BOCC supports new fire house

Print Article

This letter is to provide Shoshone County Board of County Commissioner support to Shoshone County Fire District No. 1 for your efforts in upgrading critical infrastructure.

Specifically, the BOCC views the District’s goal of building a new fire house as proactive and in the best long-term interest of our residents.

As with much of the infrastructure located within Shoshone County, the existing fire house is dated, undersized, past its intended useful life as a firehouse and ill-equipped to accommodate today’s technologies.

Modernization is the next logical step which comes with many challenges such as balancing existing and future needs with budget.

The BOCC looks forward to seeing how our residents receive the new fire house proposal.

Please let us know if the board can be assistance.



Mike Fitzgerald, Chairman

John Hansen, Commissioner

Jay Huber, Commissioner
