HALFMOON, N.Y. (NEWS10) - The Halfmoon Waterford Fire District is looking towards a bond referendum to help fund the construction of a brand new fire station.
Those working at the current station like John D’Alessandro say the building has outlived its usefulness. He says currently, volunteers are dealing with safety hazards, spaces not big enough for equipment, and structural issues. D'Alessandro says a new building would fix all these problems, and last into the future. If passed, the bond referendum comes out to $12.3-million. This would cost taxpayers in Halfmoon about $10 more a month, and in Waterford about $6 more a month.
The bond referendum votes takes place at the current firehouse on Tuesday, November 27 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
