Proposed drawings for the new Village of Necedah Public Safety Building were displayed Monday evening during a Special Necedah Village Board Meeting.


The Village of Necedah is moving forward with its Public Safety Building project.  Following a Public Hearing Monday evening during a Special Village Board Meeting, the Trustees approved a Resolution authorizing the preparation and application for funds from the state’s Community Development Block Grant-Public Facilities for Economic Development.  The Board also authorized Administrator/Clerk Roger Herried and Village President Scott Carter to sign application documents.  The total cost of the project is $700,000 to be funded with the $350,000 grant and a local $350,000 match from Village taxpayers.  The Public Safety Building would house an ambulance plus a sleeping area for the EMTs and a kitchen and shower area.  The Village police squad car and police office space would also be located in the building proposed to be built on Necedah’s north side at the corner of John and North Streets.  Currently the Village contracts with the Camp Douglas ambulance service at a cost of $13 per person.
