    Public welcome to open house and barbecue at Magnolia fire station

    Mayor Carolyn Kirk and city and Fire Department officials will welcome the public at an open house and community barbecue at the Magnolia fire station on July 5 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The station, which has been closed since 2007, is scheduled to reopen on July 1, start of the new fiscal year, after a reorganization of fire personnel. “This is a tribute to everybody involved, including the firefighters and our new chief, Eric Smith,” City Council president Paul McGeary said. “Keeping four stations open will make an important impact on public safety overall.”
