Montgomery Wants Ambulance Service Comparison
Tuesday, 03 February 2009

February 3--  Toombs and Montgomery counties have been jointly operating an ambulance service for the two counties since last Summer.  Tuesday the Montgomery County Commission asked county manager David Curry to check with private ambulance services to ensure the county is getting the best deal.

Commission chairman Brandon Braddy reports he's planning a meeting with Toombs Commissioners to discuss sharing of expenses.  He says they're happy with the service, but have a responsibility to look at all options for county taypayers.

The county also learned that, due to state cutbacks, it's losing its free work details from the Montgomery Correctional Institute, that Larry Atkins is resigning from the county Development Authority, and that the county can no longer contribute taxpayer dollars to private organizations like the Red Cross.

Commissioners also changed the time of their monthly meetings to the second Monday of the month at 5:30 p.m.  The change will take effect on May 11th.
