Village of New Berlin officials respond to ongoing ambulance concerns

NEW BERLIN – The Village of New Berlin Board of Trustees discussed its ambulance financing concerns during Tuesday night's board meeting and said they're working to keep an ambulance service in New Berlin.

Staffing for the ambulance service recently changed from two full time medical technicians to one part time, per diem, technician.

Board members said there was approximately $23,000 in loss from the ambulance service this fiscal year, and prices from the surrounding towns may rise to $45,000 per municipality.

"We've based everything we've done on what we feel the community needs, and in this case we know our decisions will impact thousands of people in our area," said Village of New Berlin Mayor Terry Potter. "There were some changes that needed to be made, and I think the changes that we made will help make the ambulance service more cost effective in the future."

Potter said the village is currently working with different municipalities, including Pittsfield, to try and come to a consensus on the ambulance issue.
