Delta and two other townships to share fire services

DELTA TWP, MI –

Officials in three Lansing area townships have announced they'll begin sharing fire services soon.

The agreement calls for Delta Township to provide services to Eagle and Watertown townships beginning March 1. Administrators say the plan will save the three municipalities more than $150,000 dollars a year.

Lansing and East Lansing officials recently agreed to share a fire chief.

An ongoing regional study is expected to recommend further service consolidations around the Lansing area.
