On October 22, 2012, the Board of Fire Commissioners adopted the following 2013 budget.  The adopted budget reduces overall expenses in order to achieve a 0.00% change to the tax rate.  As a result, tax bills will not change from 2012.

Construction of the new firehouse has fallen behind its original project schedule.  As a result, the District terminated the General Contractor, DooleyMack Constructors of New York, LLC.  The General Contractor's scope of work is being completed by the bondholder, Safeco Insurance.  

The Westmere Fire District continues to take steps that minimize any additional delays and we are looking forward to completion of the building in the Summer of 2013.
