County takes bids for fire training building

Carroll County's volunteer firefighters have been unable to train for 16 months in the "burn building" beside the Emergency Operations Center on Washington Road because of safety problems, center officials say.

But that may be corrected soon. Last week, the county took bids from five construction companies for repairs to the building.

County fire officials no longer could set fires inside the structure for training classes because the building had deteriorated so severely under the roof.

Bids for the work ranged from $105,000 to $179,000, said Thomas Crum, chief of the Bureau of Purchasing.

The low bid was submitted by Waynesboro Construction Co.

The high bid came from the Washington Building Construction Inc. Other bids were from Lake Falls Construction Inc., $107,900; South Carroll Contractors Inc., $128,200; and Allied Contractors,
