The Length of Service Award Program, or LOSAP, was voted, 54 to 2, to be discontinued for Voorheesville Area Ambulance Service members. VAAS stopped functioning on Oct. 15, and the vote allows members to stop paying fees for a service they no longer have.

After a “yes” vote on Tuesday, renovation of the McKownville firehouse is expected to begin in the spring.

Because of the state tax freeze, villagers will not see their taxes rise over the next few years as a result of any increase to firefighters' pensions, according to the Voorheesville village clerk.

Detailed plans haven't been drawn up yet, but David Messercola, chairman of the board of fire commissioners, expects construction will begin next summer.
