Trumansburg Discusses Funding for New Fire and EMS Hall

Trumansburg officials are exploring ways to fund a new building for the village’s volunteer fire department and emergency medical services (EMS). The original cost estimate of $7.5-$8 million from 2021 is expected to increase, requiring additional funding sources.

At a June 10 meeting, Mayor Rordan Hart outlined potential funding options, including $3.5 million from U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, and U.S. Rep. Marc Molinaro. The village may also receive a $1.5 million grant from New York state’s V-FIRE program, potentially bringing the total to $5 million.

To cover the remaining costs, the village may seek low-interest loans from the USDA and raise funds from local institutions. The new facility would provide space for 10 EMS vehicles, staff accommodations, and various utilities.
