A much-needed expansion is in the works for the Smithville-DeKalb County Rescue Squad. Plans are being made to build a new facility on the property with their existing facility beside Greenbrook Park.Rescue Squad building committee member Joe Johnson and Captain Dustin Johnson requested approval for the project from the city council last week, since the building is on city property.The aldermen voted unanimously to approve the building, which Joe Johnson said would be completed without any cost to the city. County government has included funds for construction in the budget, and the rest of the money will come from donations and fundraisers.“We're proposing to do this at no cost to the city,” he said.
