Fire contract dispute smoulders in Saranac lake

Listen to this story

Officials from Harrietstown, Brighton and Santa Clara - all in Franklin County - have refused to sign new contracts with the Village of Saranac Lake. Some of the towns have criticized the village's decision to switch to an assessment-based formula for fire contracts while others have accused the village of failing to negotiate in good faith. As Chris Knight reports, local firefighters have been put in the middle of the dispute.
