SPRING VALLEY, N.Y. -- The normally split Spring Valley Board of Trustees came together this week to agree to use about $6.4 million in bond money to make repairs to roads and replace old fire equipment, according to lohud.com.
Trustees voted 5-0 Tuesday to borrow the money, most of which will go toward repairing roads. About $1.4 million will be used to replace some fire vehicles, and buy new gear and perhaps a new pumper truck, says lohud.com.
Fire officials have been pushing for the new gear and packed a Feb. 13 meeting to explain the need. The board had previously been divided 3-2 on the bond money, in following with the often fractious nature of board meetings, reports lohud.com.
