Completion of local 911 memorial delayed

The completion date for a Sept. 11 memorial slated for installation in the Southern Manatee Fire and Rescue administration building has been moved  back to early November, said Chief Foster Gover.

A 12-foot I-beam salvaged from the World Trade Center was brought to Manatee County in July by a four-member team from the fire district.

Originally, plans called for completion of the memorial, built around window column in time for this year’s Sept. 11 observance. But the time table proved over-optimistic.

The memorial is being designed and built with volunteer talent.


Dallas Leitner designed the memorial that will be located at Southern Manatee Fire and Rescue.
