Hanover Reeve Stan Toews, Councillor Bob Brandt and LUD of Blumenort chairperson Leo Penner grabbed gold shovels and turned sod on Wednesday afternoon while a number of local officials looked on, to signify the official start of construction on the brand new Blumenort fire hall.

Construction will now begin on the new hall which will sit just south of the corner of Penner Drive and Provincial Road 311 in Blumenort.

The approximately 6,400 sq.-ft. building is expected to be up and running by the middle of 2019.

The hall is expected to employ approximately 20 firefighters and service Blumenort and the rural area surrounding Blumenort up to the City of Steinbach.

According to the municipality the estimated cost for the project sits at $2,975,000.
