MARSHALL (KMHL) – Ground has been broken on a new head start building in Marshall.

Officials from United Community Action Partnership in Lyon County and city officials held the ceremonial ground breaking yesterday on a building that will serve as the new home for Head Start in Marshall.

In May, UCAP announced they had received a $2.53 million grant for construction of the new facility. The plan is for the building to house five classrooms and a state-funded Early Head Start socialization space.

UCAP Executive Director Nancy Straw said she is hoping for a mild winter so the building can be built in good time.

The new building will go next to the United Community Action Partnership main office on South Saratoga Street.
