North Syracuse approves firetruck purchase after debate

"Mayor, let me make my point!" Hogan repeated several times. A member of the fire department in the audience quietly motioned to Hogan to calm down.

"You're taking it the wrong way, Mark, that's all I can say," Heindorf said.

Seconds after the argument between the two finished, board member Gary Butterfield made a motion to approve the Engine 6 specifics and go ahead with the purchase. Butterfield had met previously with Hogan for a few hours to go over the 100-page manual of Engine 6 specs and approved the committee's work. Heindorf seconded the motion. The whole board approved the proposal, and will set a bid date at a later date.

The next village board meeting is set for 4:30 p.m. July 24.
