Q: What is an EMS Service Fee?
A: It is a fee paid by electric customers within our Ambulance Service Area (ASA) to help with costs associated with Emergency Services. Our EMS Department is funded through the general fund which has been seeing declining funding for all departments. The City Council voted to establish the EMS Service Fee to help defray the costs that come along with Emergency Services.
