PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- Port Chester protesters don't want big tax breaks for corporations who want to build in the area if there's not enough money to pay firefighters, according to News 12.

Village leaders chose to fire all eight paid firefighters last month to save money, and rely only on volunteers.

Inside a village senior center in Port Chester, residents gathered to hear the latest about a proposed Starwood project at the former site of United Hospital. Members of Sustainable Port Chester Alliance rallied to ensure that Starwood will pay its fair share if it receives big tax cuts from the village, according to News 12.
