Why Springdale can't help pay for ambulance service they have to pay for the overpass to no where. The people in the effected area spend plenty of money in
Springdale surely enough to contribute to the ambulance service. SO SPRINGDALE QUIT BEING SO CHEAP AND PAY YOUR WAY YOU HAVE PLENTY OF MONEY. DON'T MAKE THE PEOPLE WORRY ABOUT EMERGENCY SERVICES.

troutjig - This isn't about the City of Springdale being cheap. Benton County has, for years, chosen to rely on other entities to provide ambulance services. If the citizens outside of Bella Vista, Springdale, Rogers and Bentonville want to have ambulance services, they need to pay for them.
