Construction could begin soon on new Hub City fire station

A Hattiesburg construction company has submitted the lowest bid to build a new central fire station in the Hub City.

Hanco Corporation says they can construct a new station for $2.1 million and complete the project in a year.

The firm's bid was one of seven opened at City Hall on Monday.

If the Hanco bid is accepted by the city council next month, construction of a new station on the site of the current one could begin in January.
