The town clerk, planner, fire chief, police chief, building inspector and others have also been subpoenaed to appear at Wistowďż˝s office.
Wistow and other attorneys representing victimsďż˝ families and fire survivors want to question town officials to determine what materials were used in the building that housed The Station and who made those products.
