Glennville to build new public works and fire department building

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) -The City of Glennville is rebuilding its public works and fire department building.

The building caught fire back in 2017 and surrounding agencies came together to help put the fire out but the building suffered major damage. The Mayor says that the new building will be even better than the last.

After renovations are complete the new building will house the public works department on one side and the fire department on the other.

This design will somewhat be like the building from before but the new renovations will bring many advancements for each department.

“We have adapted it and made it more useful going forward so the change has really benefited the city,” said Mayor Chris Roessler.

The volunteer fire department is made up of around 15 people. They will have half the building for meeting space, a training area, a break room and a special room to wash their firefighting gear at. There will also be two small bedrooms which can be used by firefighters if they become a full time department down the road.
