Municipalities In Central PA Debate Shared Services


Fire service agreement creates debate

Benner Township's proposed changes at issue in meeting

- For the CDT

BELLEFONTE — Two suggested amendments to the shared fire service agreement being debated by the borough and three neighboring townships caused a noisy discussion among Borough Council members Monday night.

Council discussed the agreement during the work session before its regular meeting, cutting into the formal meeting time by about 30 minutes. Members debated, raising their voices and each demanding their time to speak.

At issue are two proposed amendments made by Benner Township Supervisors Chairman John Elnitski Jr. He first offered the proposals in February, but Bellefonte Borough Manager Ralph Stewart admitted Monday he did not forward those amendments to the council then.

The original agreement, which puts in writing what Benner, Marion and Spring townships will pay Bellefonte for service from the Logan and Undine volunteer fire departments, was delivered to the townships in August 2008. Earlier this month, the borough sent a follow- up letter to the townships, asking they sign the agreement by the end of 2009 if they wish to continue receiving services.

Roulette, Coudersport and Austin should think about consolidation. There could be money saved.
