For a second time, the Wilson County Emergency Services District No. 2 will attempt to come to an agreement with the Eagle Creek Volunteer Emergency Services. This was after the board voted 4-0 at its Sept. 4 meeting to accept Eagle Creek’s proposal to provide emergency medical services to the district, at an annual rate of $174,833.
Eagle Creek’s proposal was one of three received after the district advertised its request for proposals in July. Proposing to perform the service for $432,924 was Floresville-based Apollo Ambulance Services, while Lafayette, La.-based Acadian Ambulance quoted a fee of $720,000.
“Seven came in for the pre-bid conference,” said board member Bill Kenney. “We only received three bids and two are not financially feasible by the ESD.”
Kenney made the motion to accept Eagle Creek’s proposal and begin negotiations, seconded by Greg Burkett. The two, along with Sarah Gella and Bob Gadd, voted in favor of the proposal. Board President Keith Wildes was not present for the meeting.
The board also appointed Wildes and Gella, with Kenney serving as an alternate, to a committee to negotiate with Eagle Creek representatives ahead of the contract’s scheduled Oct. 1 start date.
This will be the second time the board has attempted to negotiate with Eagle Creek. The board voted in January to negotiate with the fire and ambulance services provider for both of those services. But by February, negotiations had broken down because the board alleged Eagle Creek did not provide specific pricing information prior to a Jan. 29 deadline.
Further attempts to craft an agreement between the two entities also proved unsuccessful. As a result, the ESD has gone an entire fiscal year without hiring someone to provide these services.
However, attorney William M. McKamie sent a letter dated Aug. 16 to Wildes, demanding the remittance of $180,128.27 for emergency services performed since the ESD was formed. (See “Emergency services demand payment from ESD No. 2,” Sept. 5).
During citizens input, Eagle Creek’s board President Paul Schlogel -- who stood outside the meeting location and provided copies of the letter to visitors walking in -- asked the board if they planned to pay.
The board’s attorney, Louis Rosenberg, said the matter was referred to the district’s insurance carrier.
Also during citizens input, Eagle Creek’s former fire Chief Ed Schriber introduced the department’s new Chief Jackie Komives and its new emergency medical services Director Tricia Olson -- who replaces Schriber’s wife, Shirley. The Schribers stepped down Aug. 31 from the posts they held for approximately two decades.
In other action, the board adopted its budget and tax rate for the 2013 fiscal year. The adopted rate of 10 cents per $100 of assessed property value will generate an estimated $427,038 in revenue to support the overall budget of $524,299. Public hearings on these items were held at the start of the meeting.
