After a blaze destroyed the Starland County offices, the municipality is looking forward to getting a new home.

A fire that destroyed the Starland County offices in May has not stopped village officials from looking for ways to get back on their feet.

"Right now we are working with ATCO structures," explained assistant CAO Matthew Kreke from Starland County. "They're putting together a temporary mobile office for us in the village, just across from where our old Administration Building was."

The fire that engulfed the old Starland office building started in the server room where electronic equipment began to overheat.

"They're (ATCO) just putting it together now and we are hoping to be in there in the first couple of weeks of August," said Kreke.

Kreke recalled that the old building used for Starland employees was truly a blessing to have and that the new office will be a bit easier to access for the majority of Starland's residents who have had to travel to the Munson Fire Hall since the blaze.

"We took possession three days before the actual fire happened," he recalled. "We did have a training complex built into this (the Munson Fire) hall for the firefighters (so) it was able to accommodate us temporarily."
