December 1, 2022

The Hartsdale Fire District seeks public approval to purchase a parcel of land and the existing building at the rear of the Central Avenue Firehouse at 25 South Central Avenue. The land purchase, funded by a proposed bond, is sought to deal with area flooding issues, traffic and pedestrian safety, and building structural problems with the existing 91-year-old firehouse.

The Fire District’s bond request is for $490,000 plus interest and will cost district taxpayers about $28.50 a year for 5 years, including 4% interest. * Current bond interest rates as of December 1, 2022 are fluctuating between 3% and 4%. Sample tax costs and bond details may be found below.

A vote on the bond proposition is scheduled during district elections on Tuesday, December 13, 2022, between 3 PM and 9 PM, at the 25 South Central Avenue Firehouse. The Fire District is not proposing building at new firehouse at this time, and any future building would require further voter approval.

The Fire District will participate in a community forum hosted by the Hartsdale Neighbors Association on December 6th, 2022, via Zoom to provide our district residents with project information and to answer questions. Residents with questions are encouraged to email info@hartsdalefire.org prior to the meeting, and more detailed project information will be posted shortly to the district website at https://www.hartsdalefire.org. The Fire District is also happy to schedule firehouse site visits by appointment.

We look forward to the upcoming community forum, and especially thank the Hartsdale Neighbors Association for their generous offer of hosting the presentation. Please access the Zoom meeting information at https://hartsdaleneighbors.org/wp/november-2022-newsletter/.
