The council is also looking at replacing the Scotia Fire Department's coverage of District 4, which includes the Scotia-Glenville Industrial Park. The town is looking at offers from the Thomas Corners and Buekendaal/Rectors fire departments. The town has worked with Scotia for a number of years, but Supervisor Quinn said Scotia's rates have continued to increase.
"Right now we pay over $300,000 to Scotia. We are looking at saving money while still providing adequate coverage," he said.
The town will also be looking at authorizing the purchase of a new police department radio system at a cost of $1.5 million, which will be bonding the cost over a 10-year period.
