City OKs funds for fire station repairs

The Huntington City Council members approved $10,000 for fire department building repairs.

Chief Tony Johnson presented information about the repairs for Station 1.
Last year, the fire department had Baker Construction check air quality where they found moisture coming through blocks and a failing window.

During the window repair and the installment of insulation on the east wall in the spring of this year, they found four more rotted windows. The project was completed but went over their building structure budget.

Over winter, concrete in front of Station 1 broke down with snowplows and weather. The trench in front which catches water was torn up by snowplows and chunks of concrete are falling off which is creating trip hazards.

This is approximately a 12-foot wide, three foot long, and eight-inch-deep section of concrete that needs to be torn out.

All those building repairs will cost around $11,500, but since there are still funds in the budget for repairs the department needs only $10,000 from the city.
