DERRY- After being shut down for three months, Derry Fire Station 4 is back up and running.
The station was closed July 1st as part of massive budget cuts to lower taxes.
Residents voted to overturn all right budget items, and this week, the Town Council put $1.6 million back into the budget to restore the cuts.
All day Thursday, people drove by and honked their horns and waved to the firefighters.
Many residents in East Derry were concerned about response time, others say their homeowners insurance went up hundreds of dollars when the station shut down.
Earlier this week, residents were told their taxes would be going down $1.04.
That may not be the case.
A Special Town Council Meeting is called for Monday. Councilor Phyllis Katsakiores says they will go through all of petitions to show the public the costs and savings.
It seems the tax rate won’t be going down as much as people originally thought.
“That's the sad part about it because people were excited about it and the wrong information was given out. I'm sure the chairman didn't do it purposely, that it was just an error in his part, maybe he didn't know,” Katsakiores said.
The Special Meeting will be held Monday, October 26th at 6pm at Town Hall.
