The parking lot next to the Morris American Legion will be the future home of a new firehouse for the Morris Fire Protection and Ambulance District.

That’s according to Morris Fire Chief Tracey Steffes. 

Steffes said some work has been done on the parking lot of their future home.

Steffes also explained how they plan to pay for the new firehouse.

Steffes said having a presence in the downtown area is vital. 

Steffes said the land swap between the Fire District and city of Morris could be finalized by the end of the summer.
