COLUMBUS – Columbus Town Councilman Bruce Vermeulen brought Supervisor Tom Grace to court Monday, requesting that Judge Jeffrey Tait compel Grace to sign a contract with the Unadilla Valley Ambulance Corp. for service as well as a Mutual Aid agreement with the county.
The order to show cause was served to Grace last week and he filed an affidavit response the beginning of this week.
Tait listened to both Grace, who represented himself, and Albany attorney Terrence Hannigan, representing Vermeulen, before announcing that he would review all reports filed and make a decision by the end of the week.
A resolution for the contract in question was presented at a town board meeting on April 12 which passed 3-2. At that time, Grace reviewed the contract and declined to sign.
