Building moved to rodeo grounds
The Cloverdale fire department donated a building that was moved to Sisters Rodeo Grounds on Sunday. Sunday morning, a moving crew hauled a 2,400-square-foot structure from Cloverdale Road up Highway 20 to the Sisters Rodeo Grounds.The Cloverdale Rural Fire Protection District donated the now-surplus fire station structure to the Sisters Rodeo Association, which will use the building for storage for the time being, according to Rodeo Association President Glenn Miller.This re-purposing of the building will save the Cloverdale Fire District the cost of demolition and debris removal prior to construction of a new fire station building.The rodeo offered a statement on the donation: "With a little help from our friends, we keep making improvements. It will be nice to have a place to store our equipment, some of which has had to tolerate the extremes of our climate." On Monday morning, April 25, the Cloverdale fire board of directors and fire chief of the district broke ground on a new apparatus building, which is paid for through bond funds approved by voters last year.
