Article 2012-7 Fire Department Vehicle Capital Reserve Fund

To see if the Town will raise and appropriate the sum of Thirty Thousand Dollars ($30,000.00) to be added to the Fire Department Vehicle Capital Reserve Fund previously established.

Recommended by the Board of Selectmen (5-0)

Recommended by the Budget Committee (8-0)

Discussion: This fund was established to provide for future FD vehicle purchases. The 2011 end-of-year balance in this fund is $109,845.76. As with all capital reserve funds, setting smaller amounts of funds aside now will help offset much higher costs when it becomes necessary to replace our existing vehicles. This article is part of the CIP (Capital Improvement Plan) of the Town of Danville Master Plan. Estimated tax impact: $0.092/thousand.
