Festus considering new firehouse

(Festus) The City of Festus is considering building a new firehouse or simply adding another house in another part of the city limits. Festus City Administrator Greg Camp says this topic was discussed long before the passing of Chief Kevin Cremer.

Festus decided to add the new fire truck instead of a new firehouse location. Camp says the new firehouse is still on the list of future projects.

The city of Festus does own land on the west side of town near the intersection of Collins Drive and A Highway. It is located near the existing Joachim-Plattin Ambulance District house. However, that is just one of a few options that are being discussed.
