County asks ESD No. 2 to consider additional territory
Wilson County NewsJune 13, 2012 | 1,630 views | 1 comment
While the Wilson County Emergency Services District (ESD) No. 2 plans to select fire- and ambulance-service providers Oct. 1, board members there already have been asked about increasing the district’s coverage area.
Board President Keith Wildes said after the June 11 meeting that the board will request an interlocal services agreement so that this information can be included in the requests for proposals set to be issued July 3.
“This means that any areas outside of the district will have to be included as separate pricing with separate negotiations at a later time,” Wildes said. “It also means there is a potential for higher cost if the extra areas aren’t included in the base proposal.”
The request came because the area included within ESD No. 2 is a portion of the area currently covered by Eagle Creek Volunteer Emergency Services -- which provides both fire and ambulance services to an area of northern Wilson County that is located between Floresville and Elmendorf.
Also during the meeting, the board formally approved changing its meeting date. Instead of holding meetings on the first and third Thursday of every month, meetings now will be held on the first and third Monday. Wildes said this schedule, which will continue through the summer, will better accommodate a board member with a scheduling conflict.
