New Salem Highway Dept. building/Trevor fire station still marching toward occupancy

Large cement barriers still block the main entrance of the new Salem Highway Department/Trevor Fire Station.

Getting the water flowing — and making sure it is safe to use — appear to be the major remaining obstacles to occupying the new Highway Department/Trevor Fire Station building on Highway C.

Town administrator Patrick Casey said power for the well was turned on Monday. On Wednesday, flushing and testing of water is scheduled to begin.

Once the town has a clear test of water from the well, the town can allow water to be pumped to the building, where the fire sprinkler system and other elements can be tested, Casey said.

“We’re getting close to talking about occupancy,” Casey said.

The $10 million building will provide new, state-of-the-art quarters for the Highway Department and the Trevor Fire Station. In June, occupancy was anticipated in November.

Chairman Linda Valentine asked to be notified when occupancy is granted. Casey said he would be glad to do so.

“As soon as we get occupancy, I will send up fireworks,” Casey said.
