WEST CARTHAGE — The village Board of Trustees expressed support for the village fire department during its June 10 meeting.

George Passage, a member of the village fire department, said the 2014 Northern New York Fire Convention is scheduled to be held here. Mr. Passage said work is needed at Firemen’s Field on South Main Street in order to hold drill team competitions here. If the work, which includes putting up jersey rails, cannot be completed, the department had discussed holding that portion of the convention in Copenhagen, Mr. Passage said.

“I’d like to put the money into the track to keep it here,” Trustee Scott J. Sullivan said.

Mr. Passage said the event would bring money into the community, adding Pleasant Night Inn already had been booked for the convention weekend.

Trustee David Z. Rounds agreed, saying, “I’d prefer to keep the races here — that’s the big attraction.”

In other business, the board approved the expenditure to Emergency Power Systems of Rochester for $715.54 to repair the village’s generator. The next preventive maintenance is scheduled for the fall.
