The Borough of North York is now considering bids for fire services from two York County fire departments in the wake of an announcement to disband by Liberty Fire Company. A letter from the fire company, giving the borough a 30-day notice for its closing, was read to borough council and others on a Zoom council meeting Tuesday night. In addition, bids from York City Fire/Rescue Services and York Area United Fire and Rescue — both of which currently provide mutual aid to the borough — were announced at the meeting. At a special session on Jan. 21, the council will award one of the departments either a one- or two-year contract, Borough Council President Richard Shank said Wednesday. The letter, citing a lack of volunteers, was read by Shank, who had, at one point, served as Liberty fire chief for 18 years.
