Oneonta Fire Commissioners Appoint Ron Peters

 Town Fire Board Declares

Quorum, Elects Ron Peters

Citing what some termed an obscure clause in state construction law, the two remaining members of the Town of Oneonta Fire District, chairman Fred Volpe and Johna Peachin, declared this evening they constitute a quorum on the five-member board, and elected Ron Peters, Peachin’s significant other, as the third member. The fire board was meeting at Elm Park Methodist Church. The three other commissioners had resigned, one – Don Lammana, citing “irreconcilable differences” with the rest of the board. Under most circumstances, two members of a five-member board would not constitute a quorum, and Town Supervisor Bob Wood and Mayor Gary Herzig had expressed hopes three new members might be elected to the fire board in December, opening the way for a possible end to stalled talks to keep the city’s professional Oneonta Fire Department providing fire-fighting services to the town.
