No No No No !!!!!! If it not broke don't fix it...the Georgetown Scott County Emergency Medical Service is all we need we don't need another ambulance service.. you ask a someone why you join the fire dept. They reply I WANNA BE A Firefighter..now the problem is alot of fire depts be ambulance services too the city want 9. firefighters hire 9 firefighters..before the city fire dept went full time they had to be certified in cpr and first only some were certified emts that worked fine. Now to be a fulltime firefighter you forced to be an emt sounds Chief Bruin wants to run the city fire dept like Lexington...Hay Bruin this is Georgetown......NOT LEXINGTON...

Why don't you look into how much money the city budget pays for county run ambulance service. The city tax payers pay 50% of the bill for the budget. The county pays 50%. However, the monies made to the county is for mainly transport runs in the city. So the city is paying half their budget while the county collects all the runs in the city. I am waiting to see how many runs, both emergency and transports are done. Then how much money the city taxpayers are losing out on.

See how many ambulances the city buys and when the city ambulance had to transport a patient to Lexington and another emergency call comes in who is going to answer that call..I guess they will have to wait for the ambulance to get back from Lexington how long will that take

Bullsh#t. Counties and cities have agreements to cover those issues. Besides, citizens within city limits pay county taxes last time I checked, so legally they are just as entitled to county service if needed just as much as a person in the county jurisdiction. This another attempt by the bureaucrats, in this case the usual suspects the fire department, to blow smoke up our a$$e$ because they are afraid they might lose a toy or two.

Penn and Singer are going to keep it up and the county might just tell the city to go to hell and provide all their services themselves. Cherry picking may backfire on the city and then they will be forced to raise taxes. They should just leave well enough alone

And we as taxpayers can tell the county where to stick it as well.

are you sure about that? At least half are so out of shape by the time they get out of the ambulance they are sucking wind. How many times do they have to rely on in a GPS and a map to find a place during an emergency? A lot of this is because the budgets are so cut they are not allowed to drive around and learn anything.
By the way, most of the city runs are non-emergency transports. With that being the case, why would the city have to raise taxes? They wouldn't. These transport runs are the county gravy money even though they are primarily non-emergency runs in the city.

Please do tell, what services does the county provide within the city limits? Don't say the Jail or Sheriff's office as those are not optional for the county. As far as Electrical Inspection the city would be better served by privatization, just like Lexington has.

All the money collected goes to pay expenses...it's not like the service is profitable. Therefore the county is paying half the deficit even though over 70% of the services are provided in the city.

You are assuming the city and county will have an agreement. If the city goes on its own do you really think the county will enter into such an agreement? It's not going to happen

If you rode in the front you must not have been that bad off. If you didn't need an ambulance, then why ride? Call a taxi idiot! It's a pay for use service.

Of course the jail and the sheriff should be mentioned, just because they are required by law doesn't diminish their importance. The same can be said about the county clerk. If the council keeps complaining I think the county should require the city to pay the jail for the cost of keeping city residents in jail. What about the airport? I believe the city actually appoints board members and doesn't contribute a penny. It's not within the city but certainly serves the city

The city shouldn't have to purchase any buggies. They already own half of what our service currently has.

The math doesn't add up - if 75% of the calls are in the city and the city owns half of the ambulances, doesn't the math indicate the city will be short of ambulances to meet the volume of calls?
