Lagro Township seeks to purchase town firehouse
By Emma Rausch
 
LAGRO – The Lagro Town Council and the Lagro Township met Wednesday, Feb. 22, to discuss the possible sale of the town’s firehouse.
 
Currently owned by the town council, the building’s transfer “would definitely benefit the township,” Council President Richard Monce told The Paper of Wabash County
 
“The township, which occupies 90 percent of the building, has a need to do some further expansion to the building,” Monce said, “and in order to do that, they’re going to own the building because the town simply cannot afford to add on the additions that they require.”

“We’re not sure how long they’ll be there,” Land said. “We had more females today… and it was just that Miami County couldn’t take them.”
