The Philipstown Town Board has announced a meeting for 12 noon on Saturday, Jan. 15, to get input on local fire and emergency services and allow the public to get better acquainted with fire department and ambulance corps operations. The session will be held at the VFW hall on Kemble Avenue in Cold Spring and is expected to last about two-and-one-half hours. The last of three such meetings planned this week, it is geared toward residents and stakeholders as well as elected officials. Similar sessions, all involving Ron Graner, a consultant for the town on fire-emergency services issues, are slated for Thursday and Friday for fire and emergency services personnel.
