The new St. Lawrence County Fire Training Facility has opened in West Potsdam, financed in part by $100,000 in state funds. More than 40 area volunteer fire departments now won’t have to go elsewhere to do live-fire training. The last training center was condemned as unsafe after years of service. Above, state Sen. Patty Ritchie poses with Heuvelton Fire Chief Nick Friot.View enlarged photo.
THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
Massena's Town Council is considering removing political signs from public right-of-ways. During campaign seasons in St. Lawrence County the signs are often found in public right-of-ways and sometimes aren't removed even after elections.
Do you think campaign signs should be banned from publicly owned property?
Results will be posted Monday, Oct. 6.
LAST WEEK'S QUESTION:
The Massena Village board may consider limiting the number of dogs one can own. Police Chief Tim Currier told the board that there is nothing on the books restricting the number of canines one can own. He said there is only a ban on kenneling.
Do you think towns or villages should be able to cap the number of dogs a person can own?
