The sirens have been wailing across the two villages for five years now.
Area municipalities facing economic constraints have been looking at ways to continue essential services while keeping costs low. As a result, studies on sharing services with neighboring communities are on the rise.
The New York State Senate has engaged in theatrics for two weeks with little more than a pile of press releases to show for it. The best way out of this ridiculous stalemate was suggested by Justice Thomas McNamara of the State Supreme Court.
