May 21--  Local officials got together in Tarrytown Monday morning and broke ground for the town's new fire station.

{mosimage}The old station is too small to house the Volunteer Fire Department's trucks and fire chief Donald Snively says many people have worked to make the new station possible.

"The county commissioners have given us some money towards this, the firemen are going to put the labor into it and we're getting help from the city.  It's a win-win situation for everybody.

The county is providing $99,000 in sales tax revenue to help with construction and is leasing the building to the city, according to Commission Chairman Franklin Brantley.

"It's been a long term effort.  A lot of people were involved in it and Commissioner Vernon Sumner has played a big part in it.  We're just glad its done and look forward to getting it built and serving the community," Brantley said.

The Mayor of Tarrytown, Lynette Coleman, says "This is a dream I've been waiting for a long time.   We're proud of our fireman, our county commisioners and the city.  We thank all of them and we're really proud of it."
