    WOW! It's about time our VOLUNTEER firefighters have a safe and healthy place to operate from. They protect us day in and day out. It's time we support them. This new station is long overdue and will be a proud addition to the Halfmoon community.

    Dear Board Members,
    As a property owner and tax payer I would like to know exactly what is wrong with the current location, building and equipment that you wish to replace? Please provide some information before such public hearing so that we citizens can accurately process this proposal. Facts please! Thank you.
