ESD No. 3, Stockdale EMS continue service discussion
STOCKDALE -- The Wilson County Emergency Services District (ESD) No. 3 commissioners continue progress toward a contract with the Stockdale Emergency Medical Services Association (EMS), effective Oct. 1.
According to board Secretary Teri Wolff after the board’s July 1 meeting, the ESD directors met with Stockdale EMS Director David Rice regarding the contract. Revisions were made and Rice will take the revisions back to the Stockdale EMS Association and report back to the ESD board.
In other issues, Director Todd Lawson is contacting certified public accountants from a list provided by Ken Campbell of Burns Anderson Jury & Brenner LLP. The board will make its decision about retaining an accountant during its August meeting.
Also, the board will hold a goods-in-transit hearing prior to its next regular meeting, Wolff said. According to section 11.253 of the Texas Tax Code, a public hearing is necessary to allow a tax exemption for the cost of equipment and machinery for the ESD.
Lawson and Kirby Urrabazo continue their work on the budget and the tax rate.
At this time, no ad valorem (property) tax rate has been set. Revenue from this tax -- which cannot exceed 10 cents per $100 of assessed property value --will be used by the ESD to contract for emergency medical services in the designated area.
In attendance: board members Lynn Ray West, August Moczygemba, Teri Wolff, Kirby Urrabazo, and Todd Lawson; and Stockdale Emergency Medical Services Director David Rice.
