MANLIUS, N.Y. -- From medical supplies stored in tiny closets to a small and outdated decontamination area, Manlius Mayor Paul Whorrall says the village's fire stations are in definite need of updates.

"We've outgrown both stations, and they don't meet the needs. They don't meet the needs of the career staff, they don't meet the needs of our volunteer staff," said Whorrall.

The station's 70 volunteer members were a big part of the reason officials chose this site at the corner of Route 92 and Enders Road in the town instead of a dozen other locations for the new station it plans to build. Officials say it's a more central location that would allow for better response times and other benefits.

"It'll give them the opportunity to have better training facilities, allow them to train at a higher level," said Village of Manlius Fire Chief John Buskey.

Village residents were supposed to head to the polls later this month to decide on whether or not to buy this plot of land, but village officials say a disagreement with the Town of Manlius has postponed that vote indefinitely.

Whorrall says both the village and town want to be lead environmental agency on the project. Postponing the vote until the DEC reaches a decision on the matter puts the village in a tough spot. Its contract with the property's current owner giving it the option to buy the land is up at the end of the month.

"Our chances of losing that property will make us have to go back to square one," said Whorrall. "Right now, we -- I feel, personally -- would be doing an injustice to the community if I said, 'Oh, well, we can just pick one of the other sites."

Whorrall said $450,000 has already been put into the project that could total $9.5 million once it's finished. If they're not able to build on the site, renovations for the existing stations would likely be the back-up plan, but officials say those improvements wouldn't fully meet the department's needs.

If construction of a new station does move forward, the mayor said the current stations would be sold to help with building expenses.

Officials with the Town of Manlius did not respond to requests for comment.

Manlius, N.Y. – Manlius police are asking for the public’s help in their investigation of a fire Thursday at The Beverage Outlet recycling center, 312 Fayette St., in the Village of Manlius.

The call came in about 6:30 p.m. It took firefighters about 50 minutes to put out the fire in the building that was filled with plastic bottles and cardboard boxes, said Manlius Fire Chief Paul Whorral. The fire traveled through the building's false roof, he said.

Nobody was injured, he said.

Fire investigators from Onondaga County Emergency Management are investigating the fire, Manlius police said.

Police ask that anyone with information call 682-2212, or 682-8673.
