TAGHKANIC — A revision to the Taghkanic Fire District boundaries could mean residents in the town served by EMS workers and firefighters in the Churchtown Fire District could see a change in who responds to some of their calls.
A public hearing drew a crowd of about 40 to the Taghkanic Town Board meeting at the Taghkanic Firehouse, 631 Old Route 82. The board meeting was moved to the fire station after the town hall filled to capacity.
If the plan moves forward, all lands east of the Taconic State Parkway in the town of Taghkanic currently handled by the Churchtown Fire Department would instead be under the coverage of the Taghkanic Fire Department. The Craryville Fire District boundary would remain unchanged.
