Hopefully there will never be enough of you people that would just throw everything in a landfill and keep on consuming, to have your way. Responsible citizens recycle on their own and would even pay to do it. The rest of you need a little coaching, prodding, and even public criticism, when you fail to see the value and social responsibility of recycling.

Wow, well none of us know. And her body is gone now, cremated. And the original autopsy was "inconclusive". Why let anyone cremate, in that situation? Anyway, I hope justice is done, and Mr Lovelace gets a fair trial. My guess is there will be plenty of reasonable doubt --because the body no longer exists. What cover up of elites are you talking about? That's part of human nature, to…

Havermale discusses Ambulance Service, funding

1 year, 9 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.
