[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Board of the Town of Brighton 4-26-2000 by L.L. No. 3-2000. Amendments noted where applicable.]
This chapter shall be known as the "Fire Protection Services Within the West Brighton Fire Protection District Local Law" of the Town of Brighton, Monroe County, New York State.
The purpose of this chapter is to supersede so much of Town Law § 184 as directs the Town of Brighton to provide fire protection services within the West Brighton Fire Protection District only by means of a contract with a city, a village, a fire district or a fire company, in order to permit the town and/or the West Brighton Fire Protection District to purchase and/or lease vehicles and equipment for the provision of fire protection services and to employ one or more individuals to provide firefighting and other services.
Notwithstanding any provisions to the contrary in § 184 of the Town Law of the State of New York, the Town Board of the Town of Brighton may provide for the furnishing of fire protection within the West Brighton Fire Protection District, in whole or in part, by maintaining or causing the West Brighton Fire Protection District to maintain adequate and suitable apparatus and appliances for the furnishing of fire protection within the West Brighton Fire Protection District. Such fire protection services may be in addition to the provision of fire protection services under a contract pursuant to § 184 of the Town Law. In addition, and furtherance of the foregoing, the Town of Brighton and/or the West Brighton Fire Protection District may purchase, own, lease, maintain and otherwise use and utilize clothing, equipment, vehicles and other apparatus and appliances for the furnishing of fire protection in such District, which may be in addition to any apparatus and appliances supplied, under a contract entered into by the Town Board pursuant to § 184 of the Town Law.
Any contract for the provision of fire protection services within the West Brighton Fire Protection District by and between the town and the West Brighton Fire Department in effect on the effective date of this chapter shall be amended pursuant to § 184(8) of the Town Law, following a public hearing, to incorporate the additional costs to be incurred by the town and/or West Brighton Fire Protection District as a result of the provision of fire protection services pursuant to this chapter.
