    Cleveland suburbs look to private suburbs

    (Cleveland-AP) -- At least a dozen Cleveland suburbs are
    exploring the possibility of combining some services as a way to
    save money.
    Among the ideas being considered by several mayors: combining
    safety forces and equipment.
    Middleburg Heights, for example, needs 500-thousand dollars to
    refurbish a 1979 aerial fire truck used six times last year. A new
    truck would cost one (m) million dollars, but surrounding fire
    departments have ladder trucks that officials say could be shared.
    Other suburbs are looking at merging dispatch operations for
    fire and emergency medical services that could lead to more
    firefighters being available.
