Towns consider forming ambulance district

COLUMBUS – The debate over the creation of an ambulance district in Columbus and New Berlin became heated during a public hearing in Columbus last week.



Wednesday night’s meeting began with a presentation by Albany attorney Terry Hannigan, outlining the process and positive points to creating an ambulance district. Hannigan has been employed by both the Town of Columbus and the Town of New Berlin separately to determine the best way to put together an ambulance district.

Hannigan explained to everyone attending the hearing that the creation of an ambulance district would benefit each community involved by creating a line item on the yearly budget that could be monitored and adjusted, and would add a level of accountability as it would answer to all three of the municipalities.
