MASSENA, N.Y. (WWNY) - Massena officials have decided it's not practical to dissolve the village.

Officials heard the results of a consolidation study at a joint town/village meeting Tuesday night.

That study concludes that dissolving the village would be impractical because of the cost of expanding police services to the town.

Town and village officials say they plan to move forward with smaller steps such as looking into consolidating town highway and village DPW services.
