City officials scrounged up enough money Monday to ensure an ambulance for the northeast side can continue operating. The Green Bay City Council voted 8-4 to approve the 2019 budget in a tense, over four-hour meeting Monday night. The spending plan includes funding to staff an ambulance for the fire department's Station 7, at 3489 Humboldt Road, after a tight budget threatened to eliminate it altogether. The ambulance emerged as a priority for council members as Fire Chief David Litton warned response times for Station 7 would rise to an "unacceptable" level without it. All city departments face less funding than they hoped for in 2019 after the city spent years resisting a hike in property taxes.
