With an almost entirely new board of public hospital district commissioners, the outgoing group prepares for the incoming to take a leap into fire and emergency medical services integration.
“It takes a year and a half to get up to speed. We’re going to have a new board and it’s going to be trying to get up to speed with all kinds of things,” Commissioner Warren Appleton said during an Oct. 21 special meeting. “And this big thing is going to be going through the snake to be digested as they’re trying to get up to speed. So I’m trying to make it easy for them.”
At the district’s Oct. 23 regular meeting, members of the public both commented for and against a motion to approve the pending interlocal agreement. No decision was made during that meeting but a mid-November special meeting was discussed.
