By President Curtis Lowrey
September 12, 2020

Crews are taking advantage of this rain free Saturday to continue working on the new building project.

M. T. Laney continues working on the turn lane for the new property to get it ready for paving this upcoming week.

Z-Con LLC has been busy working on the area where the new building slab will be located. They will be working on getting footers framed and installed next week.

Also tomorrow (Sunday) is the Lisbon Volunteer Fire Company carry-out breakfast from 07:30 - 11:30 . Cost for each carry-out is $12.00. Come by and pick up breakfast!!

M.T. Laney has been busy this week excavating and adding sub base material for the turn lane and new entrance. The entrance from the firehouse to where it meets the Route 144 SHA right of way has been excavated and sub base material rolled and compacted in preparation for paving. Crews continue excavating the turn lane and adding the sub base material. If the weather holds paving is planned for next week.

Crews from Z-Con LLC are on site this afternoon preparing to start digging and framing for concrete footers for the new building.

Over the past week we have been contacted by folks who do not live in our area but are interested in making a donation to the new building project. Checks can be made out to Lisbon Volunteer Fire Company and mailed to Lisbon VFC, PO Box 40, Lisbon, MD 21765.
In the memo section write “Building Fund”.

The rainy weather over the past few days has slowed down work this week. However our contractors continue to make progress.

Crews from M.T. Laney continue working on grading for the turn lane and entrance into the new building.

The concrete pad for the electric transformer has been installed this week by Auer Electric.

Crews will be back to work on Tuesday. Hopefully the weather will cooperate next week.

From all of us at the Lisbon Volunteer Fire Company, please have a safe and happy Labor Day weekend!

Crews from M.T. Laney have started the beginning stages of excavation for the turn lane and entrance for our new building.

They will continue with the excavating next week. Paving of the turn lane and entrance will take place after the excavating is completed.

You may notice next week crews from BGE on the job site. BGE will have crews on site to monitor the excavation along the roadway that is near the (Tuscarora Transmission Line) which is a 20” high pressure gas line that was installed along Route 144 around 1987.

During the roadway improvement portion of construction along Route 144 traffic will be reduced to one lane during times of work. Signage and flaggers will be in place for traffic control. This will be monitored by the Maryland State Highway Administration.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause you while traveling Route 144 during the time of construction.

Auer Electric continues to make progress on the installation of the conduit for our new building. This upcoming week RLO Contractors along with M. T. Laney will begin installing the new entrance and turn lane along Route 144 into the new building site.

The septic system along with the Footers for the building slab are on schedule to be installed over the next few weeks.

We would like to thank everyone from our community and surrounding communities that have continued to support us with this project.
