Does anyone know why Chadwicks taxes are 4 x's more than any other town in the area? They have a lot of fire trucks for such a small area they need to cover.

I have recently found out that my fire tax is significantly higher because I live in their fire district. I am outraged. Why am I paying such a high tax compared to the rest of new Hartford? What is my money going towards? If the fire department has to call new Hartford fire all the time why doesn't the town shut them down and have new Hartford cover their area? It would save us tax payers a lot of money!

If you got to ride in the fire truck with the lights twirling and the siren blaring like we do, you'd know it is definitely worth the cost. Sometimes I get such a bone, I can't gather up enough skin to blink ! Well worth the money and all volunteer.

Great News ! The Chief says that I can take you for a ride in the Ladder Truck if I beat on a few doors and gather up some donations along the way. How 'bout I show you how to properly hold the nozzle in what's referred to as a " reach around " (fireman lingo) while I squirt all over the place ?

Willowvale has no ladder to take you for a ride in. Maybe they can have you take a ride in a ladder when they call mutual aid in.

What does the nh village think about all there equip bailing out Willowvale on a regular basis? Why doesn't the town board step up and do there jobs and look into why this is going on? This is just insane.

This topic is of interest. I wonder what all the people on say Mohawk street think with all those mansions who are paying three times more for fire protection than there neighbors in say Pipinwood?

Those "mansions" aren't in Willovvale's district. Further more New Hartford does not always mutual aid to Willowvale whom are more that capable of holding their own. When we do mutual aid it is generally due to a lack of manpower because the residence of the community spend more time b****ing and moaning on topix than doing something good and volunteering. Their is also nothing wrong with mutual aid seeing as it works both ways and is vital to any volunteer service. Also New Hartford's taxes are so much lower because their district is so much bigger. Want lower taxes ask for Willowvale to have more turf and to base the lines on where the closet station is instead of political BS.

The equipment to company has is vital to its operations. The taxes are based on the size or quantity of the equipment but rather the size of the district.

Maybe someone should look into why the Willowvale fireman- who are not the busiest dept in the town, have the highest paying retirement system as well? Their volunteers make twice as much as the village volunteers next door. This is another reason why Chadwicks taxes are so high. They are close to 3 times the amount. This has been allowed to go on too long. WTF is Tyksinski doing in the position if hes not looking at this ridiculous nonsense.

Waste of time trying to talk sense into fools. It is the same all over. As a volly of over 27 years it never ends. They call begging for help when their lives spin out of their control, they expect us to step up and give more, they don't have any respect for the dangers faced, yet they piss and moan when it's time to pay the piper. This retirement incentive is a bone of contention everywhere. Loud mouth losers can't stand that we get any incentives to continue to perform for NO COMPENSATION! I have served as a fireman on the fire-line all the way to chief; as an emt and paramedic and it's all the same everywhere. Don't spend money you are only volunteer. You don't need new gear you only have a few fires. Give up your car loudmouth. It's only a few miles walking. We do our jobs mostly out of passion and a great desire to make a difference. What harm is it that we enjoy doing it. Don't invite these losers to help. They won't. They will likely be the bad apple that spoils the bushel. Don't argue with them. It won't get anywhere. Just keep doing what you know you were called to do. Be safe and keep smiling. Don't let the idiots get you down. Just smile at them as you look down at them as they beg for help from the flat of their backs or when their house is burning or a loved one is hurt or dying and know that they need you far more than you will ever need any one of them.
