Lee County proposes policy change for EMS

Commissioners table decision until February

Lee County commissioners discussed amendments to their current EMS policy.

The debate was centered around the use of an ambulance by EMS workers to go out to a sit-down lunch. Some commissioners argued that the county is "penny-pinching" and the current policy wastes gas and mileage. Meanwhile, other commissioners said it was good for office morale for employees to get out of the station on a 24 hour shift. The decision has been tabled until the February voting session.
