Officials from Lysander and Van Buren were scheduled to meet Tuesday evening for a work session to discuss the extension of the Lysander Fire District into the Northern Fire Protection District, which stretches across the entire northern portion of the town of Van Buren south to Connors Road and the southern border of Village Green, and the Smokey Hollow Fire Protection District, which is bordered by Sixty, Kellogg and Oswego roads. The meeting was cancelled, however, and has not yet been rescheduled.
