Channahon trustees last week terminated an agreement with the Minooka Fire Protection District regarding a building located on the village’s west side in unincorporated Grundy County. 

The facility, located at 2800 U.S. Route 6, is commonly referred to as the village’s police station No. 2.  

Village Administrator Thomas Durkin said the building doesn’t provide a lot of space and is not frequently put to use. 

The facility also serves as a fire station of the Minooka Fire Protection District.

Durkin said terminating the intergovernmental agreement makes sense.

At the time the intergovernmental agreement went into effect, village officials believed there would be development to necessitate the need for the building. That is no longer the case. Durkin had this to say.

Durkin spoke of the village’s long-range plans.

Durkin said he is hopeful development will pick up on the village’s west side. If that happens, the village intends to assess the need for a public safety building and utilities.
