The City of Marshalltown has announced that they will enter into options for the purchase of properties for proposed locations for expansion of the police and fire stations.
Mayor Jim Lowrance says for the police department a location of 1203 South 6th is an option which is the old Crosby Pool site near the Legion Golf Course, and for the fire department there is an option of 2nd and High Streets at the former Econofoods location.
The Mayor says the next step will be what is called a request for qualifications which will lead to architectural services for design work and the selection of a firm to do so.
Mayor Lowrance says the process is preliminary and there would be no purchase of land until a bond issue would be passed and there is no time table for that yet.
