CLINTON NY, - The Village of Clinton Board of Trustees held its regularly scheduled monthly meeting Monday with several items on the agenda.

Among the items being discussed was the feasibility of establishing a joint fire district with nearby municipalities.

Those municipalities are Clark Mills, The town of Kirkland, and the village of Clinton.

The idea had been brought up informally last year, but discussions fizzled out.

Now Clinton Mayor Steve Bellona says the Board of Trustees would like to hold informational meetings to see if such an idea is possible.

“What we’re trying to do now is just have the conversation. To see what’s in the best interest of Clark Mills, the town and the village, for our fire services. Whether or not we continue in the current vain, or are able to move forward with some sort of joint district.”

Mayor Bellona says there’s still a long way to go before any decisions can be made.
