Group questions Amelia’s fire contract

Amelia Village Solicitor Laura Abrams received a letter dated March 16 from Pam Barker of the “Dissolve Amelia Now” group. In her letter, Barker alleged that the Union Township Fire Department had breached a contract with the village by failing to staff the department in accordance with the contract.

Amelia currently has a contract with Union Township for fire and emergency services for residents and there has been concern voiced over the obligation of paying the balance of the contract if residents vote to dissolve the village on May 5.

According to Barker’s letter, the agreement called for Union Township to provide four personnel per station and they are not in compliance.
