The Oxbow Fire Department is building a new fire station but construction has stalled as they await funding from the state, reports WWNY-TV.
The exterior remains unfinished, leaving it exposed to the weather, walls aren’t covered, and wires are exposed.
The fire department was promised the $100,000 grant from the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York, or DASNY. The department received a little more than $54,000 last fall, but is now waiting for the remainder.
In a press release, DASNY said, “In this program, funding is provided as reimbursement after work has been done and, at this point, the Fire Department has access to more than 82% of the funds for spending they have done. We continue to work closely with the Fire Department officials to obtain documentation to allocate the remainder of the funds.”
