Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – As winter quickly approaches, the Parks and Rec board voted in favor of designating the former Silver Lake Fire Station as a temporary Warming Center for three years.

Rochester will continue to work alongside Olmsted County to come up with a permanent solution to address homelessness. They’re also looking at other possible facilities for a temporary warming shelter.

The cost to get the former station up to code is estimated at $457,000. Construction will not begin until the city finds a vendor to operate it.
