Harris County Emergency Services District No. 16 recently celebrated the grand opening of its new administration building. The 33,000-square-foot facility features 23,000 square feet of administration space, 10,000 square feet of maintenance space and a large training/multipurpose room available for community use. Additionally, officials noted the property includes enough space to build a new fire station or replace an old facility should the need arise in the future.

As previously reported by Community Impact, the $14 million facility was funded by a loan with an interest rate of less than 2% and will be paid off using sales tax revenue ESD 16 receives.
