The Halfmoon-Waterford Fire district is going back to the voters for approval of a new multi-million dollar fire station on Middletown Road. The original $12.3 million project, which was rejected in November, will return for a referendum on Tuesday, May 7, at a reduced price tag of $10.7 million. The revised proposal, which requires the fire district to borrow the full amount, is expected to cost the average homeowner between $57 and $99 a year in taxes. The rejected proposal was to cost an average of $75 to $130 a year, based on a home with an assessed value of $150,000. "The updated fire station proposal is based on the public comments that we received over the course of four public information meetings, and from numerous meetings, e-mails, and telephone calls with residents," Fire Commissioner John D'Alessandro said.
