$5 Million Dollars Awarded to Build Los Banos Fire Station
The Los Banos community celebrated a milestone in their effort to build a much-needed, third fire station for the Los Banos Fire Department. The $5 million award that Assemblymember Adam Gray secured in this year’s state budget will not only support the rapidly-growing Los Banos community by improving response times and integrating resources, but it will also serve as a regional training facility and emergency operations center during critical events. Mayor Villalta, Mayor Nagy, Scott Silveira Merced County Supervisor District 5, Los Banos City Manager Alex Terrazas, Fire Chief Hurley, and Senator Anna Caballero have been providing the support and expertise to bring this funding to fruition.
