Endorsement: Yes to East Dundee fire station
The East Dundee Fire Protection District, which serves the village and extends east into Hoffman Estates and South Barrington, is asking voters for $5.5 million to build a new fire station so it can move out of its outmoded and cramped station in downtown East Dundee to a location on Route 25 more central to the district.
It would improve response times to the east and provide fire officials more breathing room. But what makes this deal even more attractive to voters is the level of intergovernmental cooperation at work here. The fire district would build on land donated by the village of East Dundee. The village, in turn, would take over the space now occupied by the fire station and use it to create expanded digs for the police station and village hall.
All three governmental purposes are crammed into one block on Barrington Avenue. And the village has pledged to offset the cost of the loans the fire district would have to take out to the tune of $100,000 a year. This is a win-win for all. Vote yes.
