Altoona Receives Federal Grant to Hire More Firefighters
The City of Altoona has been selected to receive a federal grant that will allow officials to add three more firefighter’s to the department’s roster.
The $350,000 ‘Staffing and Adequate Fire and Emergency Grant’ will cover the costs of salaries and benefits for the firefighter for a two-year period. Councilman Dave Butterbaugh says there is one downfall – three current firefighters will need to retire by 2015 so the city can avoid layoffs.
The city is currently in negotiations with its firefighter’s union. Officials say the grant is compliant with the City’s Act 47 financial recovery plan.
