[Response to letter from Ed Perry]

To the editor:

The trustees of LRFPD have looked at two different current buildings [Coy's was one].We decided that by the time we purchased the property and did the remodeling plus the expanding to meet our needs, the cost would be near or exceed that of the new building. The fire station would still not be located where it needed to be. Graue's building was not an option at the time the decision was made, but being such a big lot and building I think it would be cost-prohibitive.

We currently own property next to the LCPA. The trustees feel that this is where the building needs to be since we currently help the LCPA on third-call ambulance calls.

Lynn Haseley,
Secretary, Lincoln Rural Fire Protection District
