Disagreement between city, county over EMS funding is history


Somerset —

Bullock has been a proponent of the board since talks began of a new agreement began — and he even included a suggestion for a new board in March in a letter addressed to the city. 
“This is just to keep an eye on things,” said Bullock.
As per the new agreement, the county and city will each appoint two representatives of their governments to the board. Additional members of the board will include the EMS Medical Director, along with one representative from the nursing home community and one representative from the veterans community, each to be jointly agreed upon by the city and county. Both governments will also appoint one citizen member who is a resident of Pulaski County. Somerset’s chief financial officer (currently Michelle King) and the county’s treasurer (currently Isaacs) will provide assistance as well.
