Levy Makes Ballot

Williams County commissioners unanimously approve placing a 3.5 mill continuing levy on the November ballot, to provide for emergency medical services funding. The levy will be permanent if approved. Officials say it would generate $2.9 million dollars a year for EMS. The tax would cost the owner of a $100,000 home around $10 dollars a month. All three commissioners noted expenses have been rising faster than revenue, due largely to the fact the bulk of the county EMS runs are for Medicare or Medicaid patients…adding…revenue hasn’t been increasing as fast as expenses.
