MURRAY – Two resolutions were scheduled for a public vote today for the Murray Joint Fire District. But that special election has been moved back to Feb. 21.

The commissioners for the fire district had set a public vote from 6 to 9 p.m. today at the fire hall at 7 Thomas St. in Holley.

The commissioners are seeking voter approval to spend up to $680,000 to purchase a pumper and up to $220,000 to refurbish a mini-pumper.

The fire district will pursue financing through serial bonds or statutory installment bonds up to 20 years, and may utilize bond anticipation notes for up to five years for the $680,000. For the $220,000, the financing would be for up to 15 years.

Eligible voters must be at least 18 and live in the fire district for at least 30 days prior to the vote on Feb. 21.
