Back in February, we contacted all our boundary limit municipalities (Cities of Delavan & Elkhorn, Village of Williams Bay, Towns of Darien, Geneva, and Walworth) to ask if there was any interest in discussing any possible mutual benefits to Fire & Rescue Shared Services.  Several have responded and we will be having an initial meeting this next Monday, 4/15, at 3:00pm at the Fire Station.
