The volunteer team has a benefactor willing to pay for the new building. They’ve got a site picked out. But the city’s police and fire departments want in on the action and so nothing is happening, says the team’s Jack Haase, which is disappointing, considering they were hoping to be in a new building by the end of this year.
Police, fire and the team have been trying to negotiate a deal on a new building for the last six months. Police have suggested sharing a building with the fire department and leasing a space to the dive rescue team.
