Fire commissioners for Halfmoon-Waterford Fire District No.1 have released revised plans for a new fire station and scheduled a public vote on May 7.
The latest design for the new fire station and its costs were presented to about 60 residents at a public meeting on April 3. The meeting was held in the vehicle bays of the 52-year-old firehouse at 315 Middletown Road.
The fire company is attempting to get voter approval to bond enough money to replace the aging structure. A first attempt at getting taxpayer approval in late November was defeated 366 to 312. After the vote, the fire company’s planning committee regrouped with its architectural firm on ways to trim costs and took a second look at other sites.
