New Hampton city council to discuss 28E ambulance agreement at upcoming meeting

New Hampton ambulance service question marks continue, as the board of supervisors voted to deny the city council’s request to add a 422D clause to the upcoming ballot. An accepted 422D form would make EMS an essential service for the next 5 years in New Hampton.

Mayor Bobby Schwickerath says the city doesn’t understand why this request was denied:

 

The supervisors argue that if the form doesn’t pass, the problem will be left unsolved – but if it does pass, the problem will just be pushed back 5 years.

Instead, they unanimously recommended a 28E agreement that will have Chickasaw County cities paying 60% of EMS contracts and the county paying 40%.   

Schwickerath says this 28E will be discussed Monday at the city council meeting:
