Talks Still Underway for Carter Co. Rescue Service
Residents in Carter County still fear they’ll lose the rescue squad service they’ve grown to depend on. Rescue Squad Attorney, Richard Norris told reporters that they’re having scheduling difficulties when it comes to getting something on the calendar to discuss the issue further with county commissioners. The Rescue Squad originally wanted $225,000 for a one-year contract to continue service to the county, something commissioners said was out of their budget. We’re told the county has made a counter offer, but nothing has been decided or agreed on. If an agreement is not met by the deadline, county leaders might have to make arrangements with another ambulance service, which will mean longer response times for residents in need. (JH)
