The Evergreen Fire Protection District board voted unanimously to spend $75,000 combined to spruce up aging fire stations No. 1 and No. 4. The decision came at a regular meeting of the board on May 28.
Fire Chief Garry DeJong recommended spending $35,000 on a cosmetic makeover for Station 4, about halfway between Marshdale station No. 3 and station No. 1 near downtown.
Station 4 serves as sleeping quarters for two paramedics while they are on 24-hour duty.
