NEW CASTLE, N.Y. -- Under-the-radar but important elections take place Tuesday night as the budget and commissioners for New Castle's two fire districts are put to a vote.
New Castle Fire District No. 1 - which oversees the Chappaqua Fire Department - and the Millwood Fire District will each elect one fire commissioner to a five-year term that starts Jan. 1.
Both district's Board of Commissioners consists of five members who are each elected to five-year terms, with one of the five slots opening for re-election every year.
In Chappaqua, the slot opening this year is held by Barry Zezze. Zezze will be opposed in his re-election bid by Brian Jabloner.
Millwood's commissioner race will be uncontested. Incumbent Hala Makowska was the only candidate to submit her name for the open seat.
Both polls will be open from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesday. Residents in Millwood's district can vote at Station No. 2, 366 Croton Dam Road along Route 134. Residents in New Castle's district can vote at the firehouse on Route 117 and Route 120.
Those who did not register with the Westchester County Board of Election before Nov. 19 are not eligible to vote.
