To suggest that Kevin Blake’s commentary regarding the Valley Regional Fire School and our volunteer firefighters is simply misleading is too generous. It is flat-out fiction.

Ansonia Aldermen on Tuesday passed a $64,128,369 budget for next year that will decrease taxes slightly and provide an increase of about $1 million for the city’s schools.
The 8-4 vote came after a public hearing during which an overwhelming majority of speakers asked the Aldermen to give the schools more money than the $750,000 increase envisioned in a “tentative” budget approved last week.
But the school board had requested a $2 million increase, and said Monday athletic programs could be eliminated.
School leaders said after Tuesday’s meeting cuts of some kind will still hit the district.

Our state legislators have been working hard, especially this year, to address the situation trying to keep costs down so that taxes are not increased.
But the Valley’s volunteer firefighters, who risk their lives each and every day for the residents, became part of this year’s budget crunch. Some may recall, the Valley firefighters had trained at a fire school located right below the Commodore Hull Bridge. However, environmental concerns caused the facility to be closed many years ago.
