Craig fire board’s project moves forward

The Craig Rural Fire Protection District Board is on schedule to build a live fire training simulator before the end of the year on Industrial Avenue, behind Kmart. The fire protection district owns the property. On Thursday, fire board president Byron Willems updated fire department staff on the progress of the project. He reported that he attended the Craig Planning and Zoning Commission meeting Monday, when a 55-foot height variance for the tower was approved, 5-0. But the approval did not come without public comment and a longer than anticipated discussion about the project.
