Its 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.
