In a special meeting of the Godfrey Village Board, an agreement has been reached with the Godfrey Fire Protection District to swap land owned by each entity. The GFPD wants to build a new firehouse where the Highway House Motel once stood, giving it one centralized location.


In exchange, the village would get the existing fire station on Delmar Avenue and money raised by the sale of the firehouse on Godfrey Road. This is just the first step in the process, as a bond issue from the Fire Protection District to fund the new construction is expected to go to voters in the spring.
