SISSONVILLE, W.Va. — Work on the new Sissonville fire station will be underway in a few weeks, but the project was scaled back significantly when the department couldn't get itself exempt from paying so-called "prevailing wages."
Construction costs have been reduced by more than 40 percent - from $1.9 million to $1.1 million.
