Voters will decide December 21 whether to authorize the purchase of a combined engine and rescue fire apparatus for up to $725,000 for the Mohawk (NY) Fire Department, reports recordernews.com.
The single proposition would authorize the vehicle purchase and the issuance of a bond for up to $450,000 toward the expense, the report says.
Officials say no impact to taxpayers is anticipated. A portion will be covered by district reserve funds—with approximately $150,000 going toward the down payment—as well as proceeds from the sale of two department apparatus: a 1991 International Tanker and a 1997 International Rescue, the report says.
Polls will be open to registered voters at the Mohawk Fire Department at 2553 Route 30A on December 21 from 6 to 9 p.m.
