The city of Fostoria has completed negotiations with area townships in which it provides emergency medical services.
City Council on Tuesday heard the first reading of an ordinance authorizing the city to enter into a contract with the JLB (Jackson Liberty Bettsville) Joint Ambulance District for the provision of emergency medical services.
The updated two-year contract will allow the city to charge the township a fixed rate of $400 per call with a cap of $24,000.
The previous contract with Jackson Township required an annual payment of $6,000.
FFD typically runs around 40-50 calls in the township per year, covering an area along U.S. 23 as far north as Cygnet Road, as far east as County Road 25 and south to West Township Road 84, at which point the coverage area extends further east just before North Township Road 65 and south to the railroad tracks.
