Iowa City officials received slightly more than $2 million to help fund a fourth fire station last week.

The city was granted $2,268,867 in I-JOBS Local Infrastructure Program funding, which officials are planning to go toward building a fourth fire station.

Dale Helling, interim city manager, wrote in an Oct. 7 memorandum to the Iowa City City Council that the city plans on accepting the award and will continue with the bidding process for the station in coming weeks.

Iowa City had originally applied for the funds from the federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in July. But the city was not awarded the federal money, and instead plans on using the I-JOBS funding.
