Davis wrote in a news release that the wiring, plumbing, ventilation and heating for the building are mostly roughed in and should be completed this week. The rough in work has continued at a nice pace staying ahead of the sheet rock crews of Dawson following behind the wiring and plumbing said Davis.

On the second floor, the sheet rock finishers are taping the seams and will be applying finish coats of sheet rock 'mud' in preparation for texturing, priming and the final finish coats of paint. Davis remarked, "When they have finished with the second floor, over the next several weeks, they will then move to other areas of the station right behind Dawson who will continue to hang sheet rock throughout this week."

Quoting Davis' news release, "Dawson has started installing the sewer and water lines for the building. When work within North Roosevelt Drive requires the closure of the road, signs are placed in strategic locations both above and below the construction site. The width of the road, twenty-eight (28) feet with improved grade along the construction site is an improvement from the narrower rough 'road' prior. The contractor estimates that this road work will be completed by September 18, 2009."
The new fire station is estimated to be completed on October 30, 2009 said Davis. The steel supporting structure construction began in July.
