City still seeks buyers for fire station
Negotiations with a potential buyer for the old downtown fire station in Shakopee have encountered enough issues that the city is inviting others to step forward with offers.
Last month the City Council approved the sale of the building at 334 2nd Av. W., but the sale terms required the buyer to secure several needed permits.
That process is running into hurdles, officials say, enough so that while they aren’t giving up, they are encouraging other potential users to contact Realtor Randy Kubes at 952-445-9110.
The initial prospect is thought to be in the antique vehicle business.
Free lesson on CPR technique coming up
The lifesaving basics of CPR will be covered in a free session from 7 to 8 p.m. tomorrow in Shakopee.
The Scott County Historical Society and St. Francis Regional Medical Center are offering the lesson in connection with an exhibit on medicine in the county.
The lesson series continues next month with a March 7 session on menopause symptoms and on March 14 with advanced-care planning.
The society is located at 235 Fuller St. S., Shakopee.
