Champlain Fire Department warns of fake fundraising scam

CHAMPLAIN — The Champlain Volunteer Fire Department is warning citizens that someone is calling citizens of Champlain and Mooers in an attempt to solicit money in memory of Eric Monty.

“This is a scam,” the department said in a news release. “The Champlain Fire Department, Champlain EMS and Mooers Fire Department are not soliciting money of any kind. We want to warn people of this potential threat to our community.”

Eric Monty died of cardiac arrest on Nov. 27 while driving a Champlain EMS ambulance to the hospital with a patient aboard.

The release said that New York State Police are investigating and that anyone with information is asked to call 298-5200.

Online registration available for snowmobiles

ALBANY — Snowmobile registrations are now renewable online through the State Department of Motor Vehicles website.

That can save a trip to a DMV office or the need to process the registration by mail, a press release said.

At the time of online renewal, riders will also be provided an option to print a temporary 15-day certificate of registration from their own computers that will be valid immediately and can be used until the new registration arrives by mail. In addition, riders who belong to a New York State Snowmobilers Association Club can enter their membership information and register at a discounted fee.
