Nearly three dozen subcontractors who said they weren't paid for work on a $5.9 million Vermont fire station have received $789,000 in payments from a bonding company after the lead contractor filed for bankruptcy protection. On another of the contractor's projects, a state office building in Brattleboro, Vt., a surety is in the process of making payments to subcontractors. Officials of Rockingham, Vt., said they gave the same contractor $21,000 to obtain a bond, but the company failed to do so.
