I have taken a week to reflect on the suggestions and concerns that were expressed at the public hearing on October 29th and I would like to give you my thoughts. Keep in mind, these comments are strictly my own and may not reflect the opinion of the entire Board of Trustees.
To review: It was determined by the Board of Trustees to hold a public meeting to address concerns with our EMS service. Paris Township is currently the only area township that operates an EMS service without a specific EMS levy to support it and Paris Township is the only area township that operates an EMS service with an all volunteer staff. Our staff of volunteers have worked extremely hard, but they are very small in number and their regular jobs limit the hours that they are available to volunteer their service to township residents. As a Board of Trustees, we arrived at three potential outcomes and we scheduled the public meeting to receive feedback and/or additional ideas.
