I like how the mayor seems to think that 3 years is long enough to recoup the amount of money County has invested. Mr Mayor have you even heard of Medicare reimbursements? Wait, of course you have, your Florida neighbors rely on it. County stepped up even though they was no obligation to do so. Where was Action or CBA for that matter 3 years ago? CBA waited a year and a half to open now Action steps in. County's biggest mistake was not insisting on a contract from the day AMR left. I invite everyone to view the ambulance commission meeting in which they made the recommendation and listen with a critical ear to what the gentleman from Action says when asked if they have ever left a community. His answer "we have never left a community....that we have had a contract with.". Neither did AMR.
Better than me

The Andrews family just got a huge dump taken on them by Pittsfield. I would completely understand if the said the hell with it and closed up shop and sold everything and retire tomorrow and leave this town scrambling to teach them a lesson on how to treat local business. The fact that they won't shows that they have more integrity than those running the show.
