JAMESTOWN COUNCIL AGREES TO KEEP FIRE STATION OPEN

The City Council has agreed informally to keep the Fairmount Avenue Fire Station open until a new three-station arrangement
begins.

At a work session Monday night, the Council juggled several accounts to come up with an additional $14,000 so the fire station can remain open. The Council also agreed to continue the school crossing-guard program and to give Jamestown Community College an additional $25,000 to help cover salary increases.

In his proposed 1991 budget totaling $19.7 million, Mayor Donald Ahlstrom proposed closing the fire station, eliminating the crossing guards and giving the Jamestown Community College no increase for the next year.

The Council will vote on the budget package next Wednesday.
