Franklin and Greenfield are funding a study focusing on where the two fire departments might be able to share services, such as personnel training or vehicle maintenance. It's the second time in seven years the two participated in such a study, and more communities may still participate. During the week of Feb. 18, the Franklin and Greenfield common councils authorized the two communities to each spend $5,000 to hire the Wisconsin Policy Forum to conduct the study, which will examine ways the two departments could potentially share services. Franklin Mayor Steve Olson worked with Franklin Fire Chief Adam Remington for at least a year to explore partnering with neighboring communities for fire and emergency medial service. City of Franklin documents indicate the mayor and chief concur that calls for service, geography, staffing and the current financial situation of the city requires a cooperative approach to provide the best service to the community.
