NORTH NORWICH – Robert E. Wansor, Supervisor of the Town of North Norwich, will be sending a letter to the property owners within in a proposed new fire contract district in the southern and western part of the Town of North Norwich.
Mr. Wansor has had several discussions with the fire commisioners of the North Norwich Fire District, who in turn have discussed the proposed expanded coverage with the officers and membership of the North Norwich Fire Department. Boundary lines were discussed, and considered by the fire commissioners and the officers of North Norwich Fire Department.
The Fire Department is willing to expand its coverage area to include more than 50 percent of the area presently covered by the City of Norwich Fire Contract. Areas that are to be in the new contract district are approximately equal distances from North Norwich Fire Department and Norwich City Fire Department. There are certain areas that would be more efficiently served by the City of Norwich, and those areas would remain contracted with the City of Norwich.
