Supervisor Bill Reilich and the Greece Town Board Announce Partnership with North Greece Fire District

During the meeting of the Greece Town Board on Tuesday, March 19th, 2019 the following item was on the agenda:

Authorization to enter into an intermunicipal agreement with the North Greece Fire District whereby the Town will permit the District to use the Town’s diesel fueling facilities and will receive reimbursement for the District’s fuel usage. Further, authorization for the Supervisor to execute any necessary documentation.

Supervisor Bill Reilich and Greece Town Council Members Mike Barry, Josh Jensen, Bill Murphy, and Diana Christodaro are pleased to announce that the motion passed. The North Greece Fire District may now use the Town’s fueling facilities located at the Department of Public Works. The Fire District will be reimbursing the Town for its fuel usage.

The North Greece Fire District serves a large population in the Town of Greece. The department is composed of both volunteers and career firefighters who dedicate their time to providing outstanding service to our community.

“When representatives from the North Greece Fire District approached me with concerns that the School District was no longer in a position to provide diesel fuel for their vehicles, I immediately began researching how the Town could be of assistance” said Supervisor Reilich. “Last night’s approval of the intermunicipal agreement with the North Greece Fire District is an example of how local government can work more efficiently through shared services. I am pleased that the Town is able to assist in making sure the District’s fire service vehicles remain ready to protect our residents”.
