Letters: Williamstown Fire Department Thanks Voters

Letters to the EditorPrint Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

We would like to express our thanks to all those who participated in the Williamstown Fire District meeting of Oct. 15 to discuss and vote on an article to authorize the purchase of land at 568-580 Main Street as the site of a potential new fire station.

Although the article did not pass, we feel the discussion was an important discussion, and we learned a great deal from it.  As the vote fell short of the 2/3rds required to pass, we are currently looking at other ways to go forward, including as part of a joint public safety building. We feel it is very important to involve the public in the decision-making process, and will be working hard in the coming weeks to keep voters updated and aware of all the information we have available.

To that end, we encourage voters to "like" us on Facebook (Williamstown, MA, Fire Department), and to visit our webpage frequently at www.williamstownfiredept.org. We will be keeping these sites up to date, and see them as an easily accessible resource for voters to get the facts they need in order to make future decisions about District plans and proposals. We feel the democratic process works best when everyone is fully informed and when everyone participates in decision making.

We look forward to working closely with the voters of Williamstown as we continue our work to meet the current and future needs of our Fire District.
