The North Division and West Division/ Joyce projects were completed in 2018. The new South Division project was approved in the 2018 Bond Program. Property for the new facility was purchased in November 2018. Design on the new facility began in 2019 and is expected to open in late 2021/early 2022. In August the City Council approved acquiring property for a new Northwest Division facility; closing is expected in late 2020/early 2021; funding for construction is not yet secured. Central Division is still being discussed.
Training has been cancelled due to COVID-19.
Staffing updates are dependent on implementing the staffing study that was completed in March by the Matrix Consulting Group and recommendations from City Manager/City Council approval. New positions were approved to be assigned according to need based on call load and vacancies. There will likely be changes to the number of approved positions due to the economic impact of COVID-19.
