MCCOMB, Miss. (AP) - All of McComb east of the railroad tracks has been without a fire station for months, and most likely will be for months to come.

The Enterprise-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1xZfZj9) the city had allotted about $300,000 a new fire station.

City officials say the only usable bid of four submitted this past week to build the new station came in at $773,800 - more than $400,000 than what the city can spend.

Steve Cox of Cox Architecture said the proposed structure was no-frills.

The city closed the condemned east McComb station earlier this year, saying it was no longer safe for firefighters.

City Administrator Quordiniah Lockley says the board of selectmen may consider borrowing the money for the fire station and other projects.
