Ambulance Bills

Benton County’s Quorum Court cut the Road Department budget by $450,000 to pay part of the $942,000 cost for ambulance service. Other sources of money for ambulance service are saving in personnel costs and a voluntary ambulance tax. Mike Crandall, accounting manager, said the county has accumulated about $228,000 in personnel savings through June and the voluntary ambulance tax has brought in about $100,000 so far this year.
