Ambulance service offered for $129,900 per year

Hopkins County EMS offered a $129,900 annual “package deal” in a five year contract for countywide ambulance service to the Franklin County Commissioners Court during their Tuesday morning meeting.

Judge Scott Lee told the court that he had requested a price from HC-EMS for what the county would owe them every year, without variables built into the contract. “We need that in order to have a reliable budget,” he said.
