It's been almost two years since the 2016 fire levy passed, and Lorain residents are wondering where the new fire station is they voted and paid for. The short answer, the $1.7 million the city of Lorain asked to have, for a new fire station, still hasn't been used. "Multiple people have been complaining and calling downtown and it doesn't seem to be doing anything," resident Gary Luman said. Luman owns the Gas Station and Auto Repair shop across the street from the land where the station is set to be built, at Missouri Avenue and Garfield Boulevard. "Everybody wants to know where it's at," he said, "We paid for it! The money is already there." Luman isn't the only one wondering. He told News 5 it's the talk of the neighborhood. "I don't want to say it's become an ongoing joke. But it's become an ongoing thing that everybody is talking about around here," he explained. So, what's the deal?
