Martin approves $11.3 million loan for new police, fire, and library buildings


The Martin City Board has approved borrowing $11.3 million in bonds to pay for a future police headquarters, fire station and library.

During Monday night’s regular monthly meeting, Board members voted unanimously to enter into three separate loan agreements that will provide $4.5 million for the construction of a new police station, $5.5 million to fund the construction of a new library, and $1.3 million for a fire station to serve the west side of town. These projects will be funded by USDA Rural Development Community Facilities Direct Loan and Grants.
