Etna Fire Department discussion

This morning's Ithaca Journal reports on the decision last night not to send the Etna Fire Department its 2004 contract yet. Fire issues were a large part of last night's town meeting, and I'll be reporting more on that part of the meeting this weekend. Briefly, Town Board members Chris Michaels and Steve Stelick are meeting with Etna and the other departments, working on ways to strengthen all of the departments, and trying to find an emergency services consultant to help with the process. They're also looking at changing fire company contracts to a two-year cycle, though it may not be possible to do it this year.

The SPCA will be having an open house tonight from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at their building (map).

The Journal has two editorials supporting two recent events in Albany that will effect Dryden over time: "a strong beginning" to reform of the Rockefeller drug laws and the legislature's override of Governor Pataki's veto of a minimum wage increase.
