ESD No. 2 again tables reimbursement request
FLORESVILLE -- For the third time, the board of commissioners for the Wilson County Emergency Services District No. 2 has tabled its decision on a request to allocate funds to cover costs associated with emergency repairs on two ambulances that belong to its service provider, Eagle Creek Volunteer Emergency Services (VES).
The board first tabled the request for $9,685.07 at its Jan. 22 meeting.
“Holy cow!” said board member Bob Gadd. “Why didn’t we just buy a new truck?”
Board President Bill Kenney said the repairs included fuel injectors and tires from Ancira Ford and brake work performed by Eagle Wrecker. Eagle Creek VES Chief Jackie Komives said she planned to meet with Ancira officials to discuss reducing the bill for the fuel injectors, because of debris found in the fuel tank that necessitated three trips to the repair shop.
Kenney said the ESD only would pay for repairs performed after the ambulance service contract with Eagle Creek VES became effective Nov. 1. The tires, installed Oct. 31, would not be covered. The board agreed that the repairs only would be reimbursed if the ESD became a secondary lienholder on both ambulances. But because contracts related to the liens were not complete, the board voted to table the discussion until its March 4 meeting.
In other business, the board approved spending up to $1,000 to purchase electronics. Kenney said the board will purchase one laptop computer for its treasurer, and two all-in-one printers for its secretary and treasurer. The all-in-one machines perform printing, fax, email, and scanning functions.
In attendance: Board members Bill Kenney, Bob Gadd, Larry Phillips, and Roger Brickley; and Chief Jackie Komives and Ginny Beauman of the Eagle Creek Volunteer Emergency Services.
