City Council officially gets out of the ambulance business
It's official. Batavia's out of the ambulance business. City Council voted unanimously tonight not to continue funding and operating the county-wide ambulance service. True to the word of Council President Charlie Mallow, there was no discussion to be had by the city leaders. Councilwoman Rose Mary Christian was the only member to speak.
"It's a shame that the county hasn't come to the aid here," she said. "They're always passing the buck."
Further, despite the packed house—at least a couple dozen residents filled the audience—only two citizens spoke.
