I am writing in support of funding to replace the Hadley Fire Department’s 24-year-old ladder fire truck. Treasurer Linda Sanderson gave a thorough explanation at the recent Town Meeting of how the cost of the new fire truck will be absorbed and paid for within the existing budget. As a result, there will be no increase in our taxes by supporting this much needed item. Vote yes on Question 1.
