Maiden Rock contracts with Ellsworth for village fire services

For the third time in recent history, the Ellsworth Fire Department's service territory has been expanded.

Effective this month, the Village of Maiden Rock has contracted with the EFD for fire services. Village President Judy Johnson-Daleiden confirmed the arrangement late last month, a pact EFD Chief Brent Langer said Friday is for two years.

"This first time, we'll go for two years and see how it works," Langer said about the renewable contract.
