LILY DALE FIRE DEPARTMENT CONTRACT OK'D WITH NO COST HIKE

The 1998 Lily Dale Fire Department contract with the Town of Pomfret was approved by the Town Board meeting Wednesday night in Lily Dale Fire Hall.

The contract, worth $18,037, is the same as the last two years.

Officials credited increased fund-raising for keeping the budget costs stable.

Councilwoman Patricia Christina praised the service.

"The department is efficient and offers more service," she said.

And, added Councilwoman Roberta Valentine, "The department has certified an ambulance."

In other business, Councilman Edward Woloszyn said the federal Department of Labor is interested in tying the Cassadaga Job Corps center sewage disposal into the Lily Dale Sewer District.

Engineers and lawyers for both the Job Corps center and the district and the Town Board are involved in the negotiations.

At this point, the board's engineers prefer a parallel system, in which waste from the Job Corps facility would flow into a new wastewater-treatment plant next to the district's plant.

Each would serve as a backup for the other, Woloszyn said. The proposal first was made seven years ago, he added.
