FORT PLAIN -- The Village Board of Fort Plain, minus Trustees Marianne McFee and Michael Calbet, during a special meeting held Tuesday night, replaced Mid-County Volunteer Ambulance Service, Inc., with the Greater Amsterdam Volunteer Ambulance Corps., Inc. as the village's primary ambulance service and 911 responder.

Though the village was approached by GAVAC officials during their regular February meeting, at which point their services were outlined, the village board followed the village of Canajoharie's lead in designating them first responder.

During a proclamation read aloud, Fort Plain Mayor Guy Barton stated "whereas our concerns have been raised regarding the staffing and supplies as pertaining to the ambulance service, which, at this point, has been designated as the primary ambulance service … and whereas the village of Fort Plain has reviewed the matter and capabilities of GAVAC to service the needs of the village of Fort Plain … we resolve that GAVAC is hereby designated as preliminary ambulance service for the village."

The village board also approved a resolution put forth by Legislator Roy Dimond "asking the village of Fort Plain to support the casino initiative to put a casino in Montgomery County in the town of Florida," according to a statement read by Barton.

With no hesitation, the present board members approved the motion, with Barton stating, "The village of Fort Plain wishes their blessings to the county of Montgomery and the town of Florida."

The board also approved a downpayment of $6,000 to Howard E. Mosher Jr. Contracting, who has been hired to "revamp the Fireman's Home", repairing damage left by last year's flood, said Barton.
