KURE BEACH, NC (WECT) - Kure Beach opened its new town hall, police station and fire station Saturday.
Kure Beach Mayor Craig Bloszinsky said they dedicated their new town hall and named their fire station, Heglar Station, in honor of a family that gave more than 100 years of voluntary service to the town. Bloszinsky said the reason for the rebuild is because of the town’s expansion and growth.
The buildings were in the middle of construction when Hurricane Florence hit the area and delayed the projects. Bloszinsky said the town did the necessary tasks to limit the damage to the buildings while they were in the middle of construction.
“We had to do a lot of rebuild, closing windows, fixing, closing the roof, to make sure that we did not sustain more damage than was necessary during the hurricane,” Bloszinsky said.
They rebuilt the town hall with the police station attached. The fire station also was rebuilt. The buildings cost the town $5 million to rebuild.
