Rather than wait for a decision from the county, the Ridgway Volunteer Fire Department will seek lease-purchase financing to begin construction of its new facility.

The option to purchase or lease a portion of the building for the use of Ouray County Emergency Medical Services will be considered by the Board of Ouray County Commissioners in upcoming months.
The fire district met with the BOCC during a work session on Aug. 5 to discuss the county's involvement in the project.
