This fire station project will be, without doubt, the largest single capital project the Village Commission has ever undertaken; one which will benefit the residents and businesses of the Village, the CVFD fire and emergency services area, and the entire Municipality. An optimal result is more likely to happen if the Village Commission works in collaboration with the Municipality.
