Cedar Lake


The Cedar Lake Volunteer Fire Department could soon become an official town department. Town Council President Randy Niemeyer says it means an opportunity to sustain the fire department's growth, which has become a necessary focus due to the rise in population growth over the last 20 years.
Niemeyer says the volunteer entity of the fire department would remain and be able to continue to hold fundraisers and community activities, with the full-time EMS, paramedic and fire staff that are currently there full-time under their independent entity becoming town employees. Niemeyer says with the town's involvement, the fire professionals can focus on the public safety aspect, while they deal with the business end of things.
The process is currently underway and the fire department is anticipated to be a municipal department by January 1st.
