New Firehouse Coming to Wallkill
Construction should begin soon.
According to the Times Herald Record, voters in the Wallkill fire district voted on Tuesday to approve the building of a much needed new firehouse that will be built on a lot that is owned by the district near Borden Road, across from Wallkill Middle School on Route 208.
The new firehouse, once completed will be around 17,500-square-feet big and provide more office space for the fire district, an additional fire truck bay, plus more space for the training of current and future firefighters.
The new firehouse will take the place of the current firehouse on Central Avenue next to the Shawangunk Town Hall that was built back in 1964. Recently the district found out that the firehouse has structural issues due to the age of the building.
The new firehouse will cost the district around $7 million when it's completed and will impact district homeowners taxes based on their homes’ assessed value according to the chairman of the Wallkill Fire Commission, Mike Croce.
