Fixing up Fire Station 5
The front door and window at Fire Station 5 were being replaced this week. The workers are Rick Mayhew (in window opening), Dave Mayhew (reaching up) and Steve Kanal. The old door, which had been there an unknown number of years, was rotting away, according to City Facilities Manager Bob Lund. In ordering the new door and window, the intent was to match the previous style, Lund said. Dating back to 1900, the building was originally a recreation hall for workers at the Standard gold mill.
