Referendum Vote Scheduled on Scotia (NY) Fire Station

Village officials have set a new public referendum on borrowing $12 million to build a fire station and rehabilitate the current municipal building, reports The Daily Gazette.

Some residents say that given the economic crisis caused by pandemic, it’s the wrong time to propose an expensive project that will raise taxes. But the mayor said the impact of any tax increase won’t be felt for 18 months to two years, and in the meantime the village should be able to get a low-interest rate when it borrows.
