A contract for Rural Metro Corp. ambulance service to guarantee a greater level of service for the town was unanimously denied by the council.
“We just felt it would be a redundancy,” Rhodes said.
Rural Metro Corp. offered the deal to the town during its December meeting that would provide an additional level of service beyond the contract it already has in place with the Clark County Commissioners.
According to the deal with Clark County, seven ambulances are required to be in the county at all times. The new deal would have given a dedicated ambulance to the town and the contract would extend beyond county’s deal. The county contract extends to 2017 and it guarantees the same response time offered in the Sellersburg deal.
The council leadership remained the same as Rhodes was retained as the group’s president, Brian Meyer will continue as vice president for another year and James LaMaster will again serve as the second vice president.
