Note: Although authorized to mortgage up to $500,000, the SIFPS Board originally estimated that the project could be completed with a mortgage of approximately $440,000. A combination of the actual incurred costs being approximately $15,000 under budget, substantial unplanned donations in excess of $75,000, and selling the existing Fire Hall for over $50,000 more than the appraised value, resulted in the mortgage being $140,000 less than originally estimated.
