Ambulance Service Update. Reports up through March 2021 were handed out confidentially to board members. Let them know if there are other reports/data the board would like to have.

Larry handed out FY21 financials that showed actual numbers through March 2021. Nothing substantial has changed. Estimated FY21 ending fund balance is ($14,359.73). Noted that maintenance invoices were not getting sent to JCHC but only to Care so that has been corrected. Court costs of $335 from Midwest law suit are shown on here as well.   

Larry also presented the FY22 budget. The estimate is to end June 30, 2022, with $60,011.17. Julie moved and Paul seconded to approve the FY22 budget as presented. Motion carried unanimously.

 Paul asked for other business – Information Sharing:

  • Julie passed out a draft of a maintenance list for monthly, quarterly, bi-annually and annual items for ambulance routine service. She worked on this with Judy to make sure everything was listed. She will now add where things are to be done and which entity is responsible for payment. This will be completed by the next meeting in July. Bob wanted to note that Fesler’s is very good at making sure trucks are in/out quickly and their costs are much lower than what they pay in larger cities.
  • Julie explained that 2 police officers were first on a scene and gave life savings measures to patient prior to the ambulance arriving.   
  • John explained that law suit has been settled with Midwest. All paperwork has been signed and submitted by both parties – this includes Mutual Release, Covenant not to sue, and Dismissal with prejudice. Vanessa will be submitting a bill as the 28E rep for this issue. John was thanked for all the extra work he also put in to help get this resolved.  

Julie moved/Dee seconded to adjourn meeting. Motion carried unanimously.
