The Superior City Council approved an agreement Tuesday, Nov. 15, with the village of Superior to continue providing emergency response services in the village with the city’s fire department.
What’s changed is the city is no longer charging for those services using a formula established long ago. Now, the city will charge the village $1,200 for each response.
Whether the city responds to a crash, a medical emergency or a fire that takes hours to extinguish, the village will pay one price for each call the city responds to.
In 2021, the Superior Fire Department responded to 125 calls in the village and is on a similar pace this year, said Fire Chief Scott Gordon.
