* Will law enforcement be impacted by dissolution?

* Will the Town of Macedon provide water & sewer services?

* Will the Town of Macedon plow village streets and sidewalks?

* Will the Town of Macedon continue to provide brush & leaf pick-up as standard service to village residence?

* Who will provide code enforcement?

* Will the Town of Macedon operate and manage the Fire Department?

* Will the Town of Macedon combine the two Ambulance Services or dissolve the Village Ambulance Service?

* Will the Town of Macedon operate and manage the parks and cemetery?

* Will the Town of Macedon hire the existing village employees?
