The Mt. Morris Fire Protection District is currently working on building a new fire station. The District formed a 501c3 nonprofit foundation and named the Mt. Morris Fire Foundation. They are currently working towards raising $2 million toward the cost of building. Due to inflation, the estimated cost of a new building is $4.5 million, and the nonprofit foundation, along with the fire district staff, is asking for the public's assistance to avoid increasing taxes.
The current firehouse was built in 1924 is nearly 100 years old. The building was originally built as a car dealership and service station when Model T's filled the streets, the station has been modified over the years to remain functional. However, with low ceilings, narrow overhead doors, porous brick and close proximity to the street, among other issues, the Fire District Board know that the best option is to pursue a new building.
