Long overdue

Editor of the Reformer:

A quick note in response to a letter I read this morning ("The decision is final," May 18). I congratulate our Town Manager, Peter Ewell, on his letter regarding the fire and police facilities. He is absolutely correct in saying this issue has been discussed for decades. I remember when my father was on the fire department in the 80s it was discussed then. At that time, the site being considered was off Exit 2 of I-91. This project is long overdue and is much needed for the health and safety of our firefighters and police officers. Again, I applaud our Town Manager for his writing of the letter.
