Local officials from the City of Cleveland, Liberty County, State Rep. Ernest Bailes, and U.S. Congressman Brian Babin were on hand with local business leaders and community members to break ground on the second fire station in the community last Thursday, Jan. 6.
Fire Station No. 2 will be located at the entrance of Grand Oaks Reserve, just off HWY 321 at the HWY 105 Bypass. The new 12,000 square foot facility will be a multi-floor facility with three truck bays and will include dorms for firefighters.
“This day would not have come to fruition if not for the hard work, endless hours, and true dedication of Councilmembers and City Staff. We extend our thanks and appreciation to all who joined us for this ceremonial event,” according to a press release from the City of Cleveland.
Mayor Richard Boyett oversaw the ceremonies and spoke highly of city officials’ work to bring the new facility to Cleveland and said he highly anticipates the city would be adding a third to the city in the not too distant future on the city’s west side.
Fire Station No. 2 is located at 206 Grand Oaks Blvd, Cleveland, TX.
