The District of Taylor held a ground breaking ceremony September 7 for its new public works facility, projected to cost $3 million. The new building, located on Cherry Ave East beside the Lone Wolf Golf Course maintenance shop, will replace the current facility, located behind the main district office building.
"The current facility is old, more than 50 years, and this has been a long time coming. Our grader doesn't fit there, and the equipment we have now is a lot bigger than it was 50 years ago," said Taylor Mayor Rob Fraser.
"We'll still use the old building for storage, but this one will be sized much better for the equipment we have now, and we're looking forward 50 years from now for this facility."
District council was on hand for the ceremony along with members of WL Construction, which has the contract for the facility.
Fraser said he hopes the building will be ready for use by the spring or early summer.
