Summit Hill Borough Council last night hired a Catasauqua firm to repair the heating and air conditioning system at the borough's fire station.
ASL Mechanical will do the work at a cost of $9,200.
The council said it asked three firms for bids for the work. A second company quoted a figure of $9,900 and the third firm didn't respond.
Councilman Michael Alabovitz said that the work is basically replacing the entire system in the office areas of the fire company.
"We will replace the whole thing," he said. "It's shot."
