Paramedic Services of Illinois, provider of emergency medical care for most of DeWitt County, had the lease for their location on Revere Road extended for three more years.
DeWitt County Board Chair David Newberg indicates the lease agreement is for $1500 a month. He says their facility is top-notch and they do a very good job of caring for it.
Newberg calls PSI a very good community partner and credits their willingness to provide the community with educational opportunities and support various causes on top of the service they provide to the area.
The ambulance tax-rate was bumped Thursday night at the DeWitt County Board meeting. Newberg explains they nearly doubled their rate from four-and-a-half cents to eight-and-a-half cents, however, that is well below their 25-cent max levy.
