WTVFD station to be torn down next week

A new Washington Township Volunteer Fire Department Fire Station is taking another step forward Monday. That’s when the current 40 year old building will start to be torn down.

        Some preliminary work has been done this week including the removal of asbestos and the kitchen and subfloor.  Washington Township Trustee Michelle Guy told the Washington Times Herald  www.washtimesherald.com  that the old building cost $18,000 and she says they believe they got their money’s worth.

        The new building is costing $525,000 and will be paid for through a grant from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs.  The new building should be up by November. Until then, the department’s trucks are being housed at the Daviess County Highway Garage.
