A motion to authorize the Grand Ledge Area Emergency Services Authority to conduct training exercises at the so-called old scout building was approved during a city council meeting on Oct. 12. “The building was used most recently as a community center, senior center, reception hall and during community festivals,” said Fire Chief Casey Godlewski. “It got its name because it was used as a meeting place for the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts in years past.”

Back in July, the city council approved the decision to demolish the old scout building located in Jaycee Park. “There were concerns regarding its structural integrity,” City Administrator Adam Smith said.
