The municipality of Saint-Louis-de-Gonzague will soon be equipped with a new fire station.
Beauharnois MNA Claude Reid confirmed on November 15 that the provincial government will contribute $3,712,050 to the construction of the new building through the Programme d’amélioration et de construction d’infrastructures municipales, which is managed by the Ministère des Affaires municipales et de l’Habitation.
“The government is committed to supporting municipalities with projects that benefit the community. In this case, the existing fire station no longer meets our needs, and we had to act,” said Reid, while congratulating the municipality on its initiative.
The new 660-square-metre single-story building will be located at 197 Rue Principale. It will feature a mezzanine as well as a garage with five parking bays, four garage doors on the front and a smaller door on the side, two offices, and equipment storage and archive space. Several other practical components will also be installed within the station.
Saint-Louis-de-Gonzague mayor Yves Daoust referred to the construction of the fire station as an “essential investment for our municipality.” He noted the municipality is growing, and the new station will serve as a “symbol of our commitment to the protection and well-being of our citizens.” (SR)
