Work Stalled on Hope (IN) Fire Station

A central Indiana town’s volunteer fire department hopes to have construction resume next year on its new station after the contractor stopped work five months ago over nonpayment.

The walls of the new steel frame building are up in the Bartholomew County town of Hope, but heating and air conditioning systems are among its unfinished features.

Department treasurer Edwin Stone said it will cost about $79,000 for six weeks of work to complete the building. Stone says that money is coming from fundraisers and its fire-protection contracts with Flat Rock Township and the town of Hope.
