The Whitesboro FD is pompous and arrogant enough to think that their ways are ideal for every department, no surprises here. How long until their bad attitudes and circle jerk cliques lead to the Oriskany station being closed?

And now what the report won't tell you...

The merger, or consolidation, or whatever family-friendly term they are using to describe this plan is just the appetizer. Whitesboro sees a lot of money in ambulance transports that they could use to buy even more shiny equipment.

The plan once the district has been conquered is to staff an ambulance, and take over all of Whitestown as home-rule using the jurisprudence from the Utica FD lawsuits.

Personally it strikes me as empire building on behalf of Whitesboro. They want the added money and to say they're the biggest baddest mofos around. Trouble being -money don't put bodies in the seats of a vol dept. Either you handle your alarms or not. No amount of money can overcome a membership/leadership problem. It seems the WFD has issues getting to there calls now. As does OFD. Last I checked 0+0=0

To bad for the forefathers of the Oriskany fire department cause whitesboro will simply crush them. Leadership wise as well as traditions and operations.

Mills and Yorkville are right to be skeptical. This is but a power grab by members of the wfd. Wait til all the elected commissioners are past chiefs or friends of the wfd. Haha. You heard it here first!

They can buy all the crap they want to keep up with the joneses (I.E. UFD or NYM or NHFD) but it still won't change they can't get out to what they have now. Good luck to them. It will be interesting to see it unfold. Along with the ambulance I have no doubt in my mind eventually it will lead to paid firefighters in this new district.

I'm not familiar with VFD rules and ect, is their revenue open to the public for anyone to can see how their money is spent? It seems a lot of $ must be going somewhere.

The good deal for oriskany is that they will draw a retirement deal that whitesboro has managed to con out of taxpayers. It will all add up in the end a screwing to taxpayers.Wait until you see your fire adjusted taxes go up up up in the end.The whole deal stinks. They are volunteers and they should stop with the nonsense. They are not paid professionals and they should just stick to their fringe benifits of cooking chicken barbeques and a free pass for a speeding ticket . The leaders are all being greedy.and who is the whitesboro chief think he is anyway.
