Study documents will help determine whether to build new or move.
CLARKSTON, WA - Asotin County Fire District No.1 leaders are looking over the the final feasibility study that was conducted to uncover pros and cons of moving into a new building versus building one from the ground up.

Over 60 people showed up to the commission meeting Monday night to ask questions and say their opinions about this project. Commissioners weren't able to answer all questions, they said that's because they received the study documents ten-minutes before the meeting.

Captain Dan Hally, from the Asotin County Sheriff's Office was there. He said he stands behind the district and believes they have everyone's best interest in mind.

"Emergencies happen and right now if a major event happens we're operating on a shoe string," said Hally. "I think their approach is smart, because they're looking at how we can get the best bang for our buck. How they'll make this benefit the entire county and truly make this a community center."

In the meantime, you can view a copy of the feasibility study at the fire hall, and commissioners will be studying it as well. They said they'd like to hold a public hearing sometime in the future, but they ask that if you have any questions, you write them down and hand them over a week in advance for commissioners to look at.
