Rochester ward councillor Leigh Wilson presented Rochester fire captain Mick Hassell with a cheque to go towards the repairing flood damage to the station.
Rochester Fire Brigade has welcomed a $1000 cheque from Campaspe Shire to carry out necessary repairs to the front of the station.
Rochester fire captain Mick Hassell said when the station flooded in January 2011, the foundations moved and caused cracks in the walls and other structural damage.
He said the cheque would be put towards a large scale project which involved pinning the walls, re-trussing the front of the station and fitting a new door.
Mr Hassell thanked Cr Wilson for ‘‘funding a worthwhile project’’.
He said additional funding would be required as the renovations could amount to $30,000.
Cr Wilson said he was made aware of the issue by the CFA volunteers and following an investigation made a contribution from the Rochester Ward fund for the works.
‘‘This $1000 is a small contribution but will kickstart the work that is required,’’ he said.
