[HISTORY: Adopted by the City Council of the City of Saco 5-1-1995 as Ch. XXIV, Sec. 24-1, of the 1994 Code. Amendments noted where applicable.]
The City of Saco ambulance shall be garaged at the Central Fire Station of the City of Saco.
[Amended 4-16-1996; 6-19-2000; 3-5-2001; 4-23-2007]
Fees shall be determined by Council after a public hearing, except for ambulance fees which will be adjusted annually according to the Medicare New England Fee Schedule, specifically, Maine locality 03, York and Cumberland Counties.
Editor's Note: Copies of the current fee schedule are on file in the office of the City Clerk.
The ambulance will not service residents of other cities or towns outside the City limits unless that City or town has a mutual aid pact with Saco and provided that it shall have a comprehensive ambulance service.
All fees will be collected by the Finance Department and deposited in the Ambulance Fund account on a weekly basis.
Effective January 1, 1994, an Ambulance Fund shall be established to perpetuate the purchase of City ambulances and to provide adequate funds for the continued service, operations, staffing, training, capital equipment and contractual services, as well as the ongoing maintenance of ambulance equipment and vehicles. The fees collected shall be deposited by the Finance Department into a fund as aforementioned. As ambulances are purchased, any additional funds in that account shall remain for the purchase or replacement of equipment necessary for the operation of the municipal ambulance or the municipal ambulance service as determined from time to time by the City Council. The process of accumulating funds shall continue as described above.
