Monumental is how Edgerton Fire Protection District Chief Randy Picking describes plans for a merger with the city of Milton and several surrounding townships.  Pickering says, in this day of divided government, it’s impressive the elected officials from the city, and towns of Milton, Harmony, Johnstown and Lima came to a unanimous decision.  He says the leaders spent months working together considering service, staffing, and facilities.  The next step of the plan is expected to center around community education and then a referendum to support eight addition full-time fire-fighters and two new fire stations.
