Legislation has been introduced to the General Assembly that would effectively consolidate the operations of two of Lincoln’s fire districts. Introduced on April 4, House bill 5958 calls for the merging of the Albion and Saylesville Fire Districts into a newly created Lincoln Fire District. The bill is scheduled for consideration today, April 11, after it was submitted by Reps. Gregory Costantino, Mia Ackerman and Jack Lyle. If approved at the Statehouse, the question of whether or not to merge the two districts would then be presented to the voters. An election would be held in Albion and Saylesville, and taxpayers in both villages would have to approve of the plan for it to move forward. Under the legislation, notice must be sent to the residents of each district at least 20 days before the election.
