7. City of Mattoon to end its ambulance service.

The Mattoon City Council voted July 18 to eliminate the Mattoon Fire Department’s ambulance service, effective May 1, 2018. Now, as the new year begins, the city is scheduled to start negotiating a new contract with Mattoon Firefighters Local 691 while going through arbitration for two grievances filed by this union related to the ambulance service.

WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY — Police Commissioner George N. Longworth will retire on Jan. 2, capping a 35-year law enforcement career in which he headed two police departments in Westchester County. He’ll be practicing law again, at his firm in Dobbs Ferry.
