Local politicians, members of the community and fire fighters came together on Thursday evening at the Atlantic Beach Club to discuss the proposal to renovate the Middletown Fire Station.
Come Nov. 6, voters will decide on the $7.5 million bond referendum. The town administration has stated the bond will not impact taxpayers, as the money will be pulled from revenue that the town receives from the Navy for police and fire services.
In 2005, council established a dedicated fund for this revenue, called the PPV Special Revenue Fund, that was established to reserve money exclusively for capital improvements projects related to public safety.
The town is in a 20 year contract with the Navy, and receives $1.1 million annually.
