The council is acting very ignorant and looking much worse by going against the vote than they are by not backing down from their rushed agenda.

Can't understand their reasoning at all in going against the voters. It will came back on them when they lose support on future projects and taxes they want our vote on.

They are cutting their own throat and don't even care or realize it.
OUR city will suffer because of their actions and bad leadership.
Time to encourage, support, and elect new leadership at the next election.

medic one never heard from 911 EVER that their was a problem
then one day got a call from baltz and old olvey that there was a problem
told you have to have a third truck
at that time medic one said no
meetings called meetings at old olvey's office
council meeting
franchise
medic one didn't apply
promed did
promed got the bid because there was no other service to apply
first franchise for promed to ever receive
the people got this overturned put to a vote
franchise overturned by voters
1 hour meeting
only medic one and promed owners spoke
there wasn't 50 people to speak in support
broadway asked medic one can you make it if we have two services?
medic one YES
promed NO
olvey put to a vote for promed
end of story?

only if the people of pocahontas say so
there's going to be a new mayor get behind and support a person who is for all the people
support an attorney to run against joe grider
support a persons to run against olvey declerk,furtrel,winebaugh,scot t.
then maybe the town can once more be ran with an agenda for all the people and not just a select few.
my opinion

You have a good point...since ProMed was rejected by a majority of voters, how do they feel about helping those same voters now, knowing that the other service was preferred by a majority? The city council should have realized that a lingering trust issue would remain between the voters and the rejected service, ProMed. Of course, the council doest care about that, and doesn't care about the safety & welfare of the people. It's all about having their way, and not looking bad by backing down. It's simple, our council members are idiots. Repeat. Repeat.
Regardless of what the outcome was just because they were votes against, it is not going to hinder their care they will still provide the best care possible to their pt's because they want to earn your trust and your support they will provide the best care possible the whole time they are here I agree the council shouldn't have done that but I still like promed just as good they provide excellent care and will continue to do so all they want is everyone's trust give them a chance before you start running them down when you haven't even seen how they do things everyone didnt like medic one when they first came in but they earned y'all's trust and support and that's all promed wants
just wow

What official capacity does old olvey have to call, have a meeting at his office, and make demands of medic one?

Seems the erc and council sould have officially met with them = legal public meeting.

Clear that medic one was victim of hidden personal agenda(s). Should sue the piss out of olvey, and city for defamation about "inadequate" claim.

Lawsuits seem to be te only way to deal with the city. It's getting old and costly.

When can we sign another petition or an initiative to fix this mess?

my question also in what official capacity is old olvey? this should have been a public meeting why wasn't it? what can the people do about this? can there be a class action lawsuit against the city? private meetings that effect every person in the county but only a select few are invited to attend?
im mad not at promed or their employees but at the way this whole matter from handle.someone had an agenda and got there way at the cost of other people and there jobs that were lost. i say this one more time has nothing to do with promed it could have been aet or any other service, it the way our elected official allowed this whole mess to go down. vote the whole mess of them out of office.

The city council may have been acting within it's legal authority when it "overruled" the election results. That being said, most voters understand the council action was morally and ethically bankrupt.
Laws, actions, and legislation can be challenged in court.
An attorney is examining the history and documents. Advice will be forthcoming.

the rushed first meeting and emergency vote on a franchise ordinance was likely illegal at the time if challenged, but became legal after 60 or 90 days.

public officials and private persons having a meeting to make demands of a private business may not be illegal, but is NOT good or ethical.

reflects badly on everyone that did it and attended. now thoroughly disappointed with our county judge. what the heck were they thinking.

why no public discussions at the county or city council meetings before we were blindsided with the emergency franchise ordinance passed at one meeting?
council full of cowards with an agenda is the answer.

would bet there were some private discussions on medic one and the franchise among councilmen outside of public meetings. all happened too quickly and unanimously at the one meeting.

note how the council requested and accepted memorandums up until the time of the meeting, but neither read nor discussed them... Don't let them lie to you, they didn't read them during the public meeting, didn't read them aloud, what a lie _ crock

What good is this doing ? I bet you people bitching are the same people that sit at the coffee shop and bitch day after day you never have anything good to say about anyone and you are always negative. If you put half the energy and effort into something positive just imagine what you people could do. I know you think you are trying to keep the city from taking control but they do not have control you can drive yourself to the hospital or have someone take you. Pro med has done nothing wrong. They were invited here let's give them credit for coming. Pro med has not done anything to you. Move on.

time to get this crap out to the public and see why and how things went down on this and who all was involved and caused it.

when exactly were these meetings?
how many meetings were there?
who was at each meeting?
who called the meetings and where were they held?
was medic one told of the future emergency franchise plans?

i hold nothing against promed or its employees
i cant move on when i have more questions then answers to how this whole mess went down.having meetings with men that hold elected positions but as far as i know meetings were not open to the public is why i cant move on and really you should question this also.

nothing wrong at all with our posting about and questioning the council bad actions.
we ARE trying to do something positive. trying to see that our VOTE did mean something.
why you have a problem with it? maybe YOU need to move on!

people should and WILL bitch when their elected officials do stupid rushed agenda driven crap and then piss on us and our winning vote. get over it. this is about the council, not promed.
