Rural/Metro Ambulance ends contract in Clark County

Yellow, New Chapel to pick up slack



Carolyn King with March2Recovery made the request for the moratorium, stating that the relief organization was still busy helping families affected by the deadly EF-4 tornado which hit Northern Clark County on March 2, 2012.



The commissioners tabled a request by Mike Whelan with Insurance and Investment Group to become the county’s agent of record for property and casualty insurance. 

The commissioners seemed surprised by Whelan’s request. 

“I don’t think we’re ready to do that. I’m not ready to do that tonight,” Commissioner John Perkins said. 

The commissioners had misunderstood the purpose of Whelan’s visit, Coffman added. 

Edward “Culpepper” Cooper with Neace Lukens is the county’s current agent of record for property and casualty insurance. 



As expected, the commissioners unanimously approved an agreement with the city of Jeffersonville regarding payments to the city for the use of the J.B. Ogle Animal Shelter. 

The county will make two payments to the county for back fees owed for the use of the shelter. The county will pay $75,000 by the end of March and another $75,000 by Oct. 1. Rent for the city of Jeffersonville’s lease of space in the county building is forgiven through 2014. 

Perkins commended Commissioner Rick Stephenson for negotiating the agreement with Jeffersonville Mayor Mike Moore.
