City, county come to terms on EMS dilemma

(Continued)

Somerset —

“I think we can both agree that the exercise we have been through has not only been time-consuming for both the City and the County, but has also caused some uncertainty for the EMS employees and it would be beneficial for all concerned if we minimize the odds of the same situation reoccurring,” Bullock stated in his March letter. “I believe the reinstituted EMS Board will be able to address most issues that arise with regard to EMS, including providing budget oversight, which will make for more efficient government for all residents of Pulaski County, regardless of where they live.”
Girdler also stated that updated interlocal agreements have been sent to the cities located within the county that will establish EMS service in those cities through Somerset.
