City FD Saving Money with Full Staffing
Written by Dan Fischer on February 14, 2018
Batavia’s City Fire Chief Steve Napolitano says the department has an 11.4 percent spending reduction over last year.
He says that now that the department is fully staffed with six new recruits, they are not having to pay overtime and training costs.
Napolitano is looking down the road to replace fire Engine 12 that is 15 years old, however his next priority is replacing old turnout gear…
The Chief said the replacement program helps ease what could be a large expense by the city.
The total budget for Batavia’s City Fire Department is around $3.6 million.
