Shakopee will begin the process of putting the vacant downtown fire station on the market after deciding not to sell it to a proposed brewery, the Shakopee Valley News has reported.
Josh Vogel, Dave Luskey and Fred Marschall first proposed the brewery in July. The tentative opening date would have been for July 2013.
The city council met in a closed session earlier this week to discuss the $100,000 offer that the brewery company made to the city to purchase the fire station, according to the report.
The appraisal valued the fire station property at $580,000, and the city council decided not to accept the brewery company's offer.
The River Valley Cooperative Arts had also presented a proposal for use of the fire station, which is located at 334 Second Avenue West.
