Old Del City municipal building will be demolished

The old Del City municipal building will be demolished to make way for a fire station. The structure was built in 1948 but was abandoned when police moved into their new building last year.

A new station will be a welcome site for firefighters. Currently the main station is on the edge of town. When a new station is built, it will be a more centralized location and allow fire administration to meet in one building. The fire marshal, inspector and chief now are in separate buildings.

“As far as morning meetings, they have to leave and come up here,” fire Maj. Brandon Pursell said. “We think by consolidating, it will make things more efficient and eliminate some of that disconnect that happens when everyone is at a different spot.”

Edwards said the city also is trying to find a home for the 100,000-gallon water tower at the old police station site. He said the tank would be made available to any individual or municipality that can haul it off.
