The Syosset Fire District released a statement before the elections to correct initial information that was provided about their budget, saying "This gave the impression that the 2013 increase was greater than it actually was. Syosset Fire District’s budget for 2013 did not exceed the adjusted amount allowed under the NYS Tax Cap requirement."
The Board of Fire Commissioners consists of five members of the department.
