Problem with all of these studies is a lack of strong scientific support in the conclusions. You can't control "for other variables" with any real chance of veracity. We will...on the other hand...have a small experiment here which should give a good indication of the truth of these ideas. Kids in the new schools should perform notably better (11%???) then the ones still stuck in the old ones.…

This means nothing unless it's the E6 number. If it's the E3 number it's a lie. The real unemployment number , E 6, nation wide is close to 12%.

Havermale discusses Ambulance Service, funding

1 year, 11 months ago by Denise Donley

3rd Ward Alderman Paul Havermale is on the Adams County Ambulance Board and discussed the issues on WTAD's Mary Griffith Show

At the November 13 Adams County Board meeting, $57,100 of funding was restored to the Adams County Ambulance Service’s budget.

A lot of discussion at the board meeting had to do with the addition of the sixth ambulance, as well as the deficit the Service has been running.

 3rd Ward Alderman Paul Havermale is on the Adams County Ambulance Board and discussed the Ambulance Services Wednesday morning on WTAD's Mary Griffith Show.

Response times are critical, and Havermale discussed the location of the ambulances.

“It may be more critical to have the ambulances out in the county, but if you put it on the business model, but you don’t put your lemonade stands on a non-busy corner,” said Havermale. “If you’re going to operate as a business, then the calls are in Quincy. The folks in the county have an ambulance line item on their property taxes just as I do as a city resident.”

The County Board also voted 11-9 for the Ambulance Service to increase the amount it could levy by $200,000 to $700,000.

When asked if Havermale favors a tax increase to keep funding this sixth ambulance and continuing to improve response standard, he said “I believe that the budget request we put in as a board and as a service is what we need to operate and nothing more. If the county board and the finance committee feel that the only way to fund that request is a tax levy increase then yes, I would have to support that. It could be we have a budget approval but no way to fund it.”

The County Board is voting on the proposed levy at their December meeting.
