Fire coverage still a burning issue in Glenville

"I would like us to be able to take politics out of the issue here," said Kastberg.

He said he feels that the taxpayers will want to keep receiving coverage from the village.

A flier has been circulating in the district citing statistics about what surrounding areas pay in fire taxes. The source of the flier is unclear, but officials say it is an indication that people are talking about the issue.

The flier states that similar fire coverage can be provided by Thomas Corners Fire District or Beukendaal for almost half of the current tax rate of $540 for a home assessed at $200,000.

For the past several years, the Glenville Town Board has looked at estimates for coverage from both Thomas Corners and Buekendaal that have shown similar figures. ""
