This evening, the Public Safety Center was officially dedicated. Police and Fire Department members and their families helped celebrate the event with a BBQ and building tours. Many retired fire and police members also attended the event.

We would like to thank Dakota Community Bank for helping with the grilling! It turned out to be a very special event.

The Public Safety Center is a few weeks away from beginning operations. Contractors are making the "finishing touches" and bringing the center to life. We will notify the public well in advanced of the switchover of operations to the new facility. Stay tuned!
