Ambulance service agreement may produce profit

County board hears optimistic report from County Treasurer

Cass County taxpayers could finally get some really good news regarding the ambulance service agreement between the County Board and the City of Beardstown.

County Treasurer Travis Cox told board members Monday night the agreement between the two local governments to provide ambulance service for Virginia, Ashland, Chandlerville and the rural areas of eastern Cass County’s seven townships appears to be working and working well. So well, in fact, if the early trends reported continue through the remainder of the 14-month agreement, the ambulance service could realize a profit.

According to information provided by Beardstown Ambulance and Brian Ruch, Beardstown’s City Clerk, Cox said if call volume and billing for services provided for the first two months continue through the remainder of the contract, there could be a net profit. &nbsp;&nbsp;<ahref="http://etypeservices.com/Cass%20County%20Star%20GazetteID497/"><spanstyl... 13px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">To view more, please log in or subscribe to the digital edition.</span></a></p
