Plaistow Town Results


Yes: 737

No: 402


Article P-12-07: Shall the town vote to raise and appropriate the sum of $405,000 for the replacement of Engine 7 and to withdraw those funds from the Fire Department Equipment Capital Reserve Fund and the Public Safety Impact Fee (Fire Apparatus Sub-allocation) Fund for this purpose? This article is contingent on the passage of Article P-12-06.

Appropriation: $405,000

Withdrawal from Public Safety Impact Fee (Fire Apparatus Sub-allocation) - $3,211

Withdrawal from Fire Department Capital Reserve: -$401,789

Amount to be raised from 2012 taxes: $0

(Recommended by the Board of Selectmen (5-0-0) and recommended by the Budget Committee (10-0-0); and this funding is in the Capital Improvement Program as approved by the Planning Board.)

[Intent: This piece of apparatus has been in service since 1987 and is due for retirement from the department. The Fire Department Truck Committee has been working over the last year to specify a replacement that will combine the functions of both Engine-7 and Rescue-6 affording greater flexibility in their emergency responses. "Zeroing out" the apparatus sub-allocation of the Public Safety Impact Fee is also necessary due to the length of time these funds are allowed to be held by statute (6 years)].

Yes: 808

No: 354


Article P-12-08: Shall the Town vote to raise and appropriate the sum of $48,500 to establish an additional fulltime Firefighter/Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) position with the Fire Department. This sum represents the cost of wages, associated roll up costs (such as taxes, insurance, retirement and uniforms). With an anticipated hire date of May, this represents eight months of funding for the new position. If approved, the position will be funded on an annual basis within the Operating Budget of the Fire Department starting in 2013.

(Recommended by the Board of Selectmen (5-0-0) and Budget Committee (10-0-0); and this funding is in the Capital Improvement Program as approved by the Planning Board.)
