Hanover’s Fire District # 2 residents are asked to come out on Aug. 10 between the hours of 2:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. to approve or disapprove the construction of a firehouse for an amount not exceeding $6,100,000.00. Voting will take place at the Commissioner’s Building at 434 Route 10, Whippany.
The special election has nothing to do with the fire tax. All fire tax monies go toward purchasing new equipment. Whippany just recently purchased a new engine that will replace an older model. The Whippany fire team also added a few more members to their career staff to ensure staffing when volunteers may not be available.
