Fire issues top Scotia agenda

"It's not of question of how good the service is that Scotia provides; it is a question of the wallets of the taxpayers involved. The [Glenville] Town Board actually has to act as the board of fire commissioners, and we have to do what the customer wants," said Quinn.

In other fire department news, Kastberg said the village is excited to receive a $75,000 federal grant that will allow the fire department to purchase new air packs. He said the department needs to replace air packs every 15 years, and the grant will mean a huge savings for the department.

"We are very happy to have this news, its will allow us to help improve the safety of our firefighters," said Kastberg.

The village will also begin talks about a new municipal building. The current location of the police and fire departments, administrative offices and courthouse are aging at their North Ten Broeck Street location.

The board will next meet at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 14.""
