On September 25, 2010, Peter J. Weishaar, Esq., was one of several featured speakers at the Western New York Fire District Officers' Legislative Association Fall Workshop. As in past years, this event was held at the Batavia Party House. Mr. Weishaar reviewed the procedures for buying and selling surplus fire equipment and apparatus, which are topics often faced by fire districts when they need to replace aging equipment.
Mr. Weishaar also worked with the other attorney panelists to facilitate a consolidation exercise, which was a major focus of this year's workshop. Participants at the conference were paired with neighboring fire districts and asked to draft a consolidation agreement under the terms of the recently enacted NY Government Reorganization and Citizen Empowerment Act.
Mr. Weishaar represents several fire districts in Monroe and Wayne Counties. His municipal practice also includes the ongoing representation of planning and zoning boards, and he also represents municipalities as special counsel in litigation matters.
