Madison Township will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 25, for Station 183, its new fire station at 3228 Noe Bixby Road, Columbus.

Ground was broken for the facility in July 2017 after township trustees approved a $3.5 million design-build agreement with Turner Construction Co.

Township voters approved a 5.25-mill operating levy in May 2015 to help pay for a third firehouse for $3.5 million and get a third medic in service.

The township received the land on Noe Bixby Road at no cost through the Franklin County Land Bank program, which is funded from penalties and interest paid by delinquent taxpayers and can provide opportunities for properties that are blighted, vacant or tax-delinquent.

An old apartment building was torn down to make way for the station.
