NORTHAMPTON, N.Y. — The discovery of an account under the town's name for the local volunteer ambulance service that elected officials knew nothing about has become a political football.
The account is for the Northampton Ambulance Service, a private, nonprofit organization, and it carries the town's federal identification number. Town Supervisor Linda Kemper revealed its existence during a recent Town Board meeting.
