Spring Valley Officials Looking to Fund Fire Department

Spring Valley fire officials are raising concerns about the state of equipment after three trucks were forced to receive repairs. Much of the department’s equipment is aging and broken down, and volunteers are urging village officials to do something about the lack of equipment. Mayor Demeza Delhomme stated that he will be putting funding for the department into his proposed budget for 2015, which must be approved by April 30, and Trustee Vilair Fonvil stated that he would approve a $2-3 million bond for new equipment and vehicles, and Trustee Asher Grossman agreed that new funding is necessary. The village has a history of disagreements between Mayor Delhomme and the board of trustees, and some residents and volunteer firefighters have claimed that plays a part in their lack of funding. The trustees voted no on the Mayor’s recent proposal for twelve additional building and fire inspectors, stating there was not enough information to pass.
