This website is designed to facilitate community engagement as the communities of Schodack consider the merger of fire service agencies. The Town of Schodack has engaged CGR to conduct an overview of the operational factors, public opinion and community impacts.
CGR has completed their study of the fire service in Schodack. The reports on the project are available below.
The baseline and options reports are now available.Email Study Team
CGR will spend time on-site meeting with key stakeholders, interviewing officials and department heads, and gathering data regarding budgets, operations, and governing structures. The resulting analysis will provide the Town of Shodack with insight into the feasibility of a unified fire district. Throughout the process, residents will be asked to provide feedback via the project website and at a public meetings during the study process.
The process is being overseen by a Leadership Committee composed of representatives from the Town of Shodack and each fire district with assistance from CGR, a nonprofit management consulting organization with expertise in government management, public finance and municipal consolidation processes.
The Leadership Committee and CGR encourage public engagement in this process. Please submit your comments, questions and other feedback by clicking here.
