NORWICH – At the last meeting of the Finance / Personnel Committee, members discussed changes that may need to be made to contracts with nearby towns for ambulance and fire service.
City Financial Director Bill Roberts told the committee that a five-year contract for services expired in December. The renewal process has begun, and fire protection service and first responder service will continue to be provided by the city until the contract is renewed.
Some committee members expressed concern over leaving the contract fees on par with what they had been in the previous contract. “We haven’t gotten a number on what the ambulance service costs,” Alderman Robert Jeffrey said. “I hesitate to agree to a $1 a year figure for the next three years.”
