Village, town OK replacing extrication equipment but not firehouse overhead door and opener

The Belgium Fire Department nearly had its entire budget request approved by the combined village and town boards last month.

A 6-0 vote gave the fire department a budget of $133,000 for 2017, down from its request of $139,100.

The major project to be cut from the budget is replacing the overhead door and opener at the firehouse for $4,200. Chief Dan Birenbaum said replacing the door could save on heating since the existing door isn’t insulated well, but said it is a project that could be delayed.

“I hate to take (funds away) anyplace else,” Birenbaum said.
