Crews from Waverly Construction continue site preparation for a new fire barn for the Allen County Volunteer Fire Department.

“It’s not every day you get to spend $750,000,” Allen County Commissioner Jerry Daniels quipped as the commissioners adjourned Tuesday morning.

It was $744,353.50, to be exact. Commissioners bit the bullet and finally approved Koehn Construction, of Fredonia, to build two ambulance stations — one in Humboldt and one in Moran — for $698,000. They also approved the purchase of two rescue boats and a double-stack trailer for $46,353.50.

Last week, commissioner Bill King said that he was not ready to award the bid on the stations.
