Nesconset Fire District (NY) to Vote on Fire Apparatus Lease

The Nesconset Fire District plans to put a public referendum on leasing a new fire truck to a vote.

If approved, the referendum would allow the district to lease a new truck at a cost not to exceed $518,609 for a period of seven years, said Kevin Zanfardino, the district’s treasurer and secretary.

“We’re replacing a 25-year-old pumper,” he said of the need for a new truck. “The size of the truck is just not feasible anymore for the equipment that we have to carry, and the cost of the repairs is starting to be prohibitive.”

Zanfardino said the district typically holds onto its trucks as long as possible, but wanted to take advantage of leasing rates given the repair costs.
