The Cazenovia Village Board of Trustees will hold a public hearing at 6:45 p.m. Jan. 3 to discuss the possibility of buying a house next to the fire department.
In the short term, said Deputy Mayor Kurt Wheeler, the property at 3 Farnham St. would be used for some parking and the house would be used for training. Eventually, the property might be torn down for more parking, and an eventual fire department building expansion could include sleeping quarters, Wheeler said.
The purchase would cost about $110,000, and the village would lose about $800 per year in tax revenue.
Members of the public are invited to attend the January public hearing to comment on the idea.
