New Fire Station/Community Center for New Vienna

New Vienna is home to a new fire station, which will also serve as a community center and city office space.

New Vienna/Luxemburg Fire Chief Mark Lukan says it’s a great addition to their town.

The new building is located across the street from the church where the old playground once sat. Lukan says it was a project the New Vienna community had been considering for quite some time.

The total cost for the project was about 989-thousand dollars.

There were some rain delays this spring getting the concrete poured, but Lukan says the project – from the time they started fundraising to walking in the new door – only took about eight to ten months. A dedication and open house was held Saturday to celebrate the finished building.

The New Vienna/Luxemburg Fire Department officially started operating out of the new building on Saturday night.

The old fire station will still serve a purpose in the community, too – three of the bays will hold city maintenance equipment, one bay will house the town’s police car and the fifth bay will be used as extra storage space.
