HUNTER – The Village of Hunter has received a $1.97 million state grant to relocate its fire station just 0.15-miles west of its current site taking it outside of the regulatory floodway and the 100-year and 500-year flood hazard areas of the Schoharie Creek.

The existing station and back building will be demolished and replaced with a municipal park with streamside access.

The current station becomes inaccessible during even moderate flood events due to the undersized bridge.

Relocation of the firehouse will allow for the expansion of the bridge and greatly alleviate flooding throughout the village, officials said.
