One of two fire stations in Merrill will be sold and city administrators say the move paves the way for a brand new station in 2014. The city council approved selling the City's west side Fire Station number #2.
Agra Industries, which is located next door, is buying the property for $138,000 with plans to expand.
The city will take up the issue of what to do with the Merrill's main Fire Station, which is nearly 100-years-old.
The City will then work on plans for combined services through a brand new building.
