Licking Fire Company’s Station 3 on Ohio 13 north of ODOT’s District 5 headquarters is now just a memory. It took Robertson Construction of Heath just a day to demolish the three bay, pole barn structure. A new seven-bay fire station is to be completed by July 30, 2018. Licking Township is funding the $2,155,000 project with estate tax receipts and several specific bequests for a new station. It will also replace the Company’s Station 1 on top of the hill.
