Looking to replace an aging fleet, Campbellsville Mayor Tony Young discussed at Monday’s City Council meeting his plans to buy a new medic unit every two years.
Young said that the cost to maintain the Campbellsville/Taylor County EMS vehicles has gone up. From July to November 2010, medic unit maintenance cost $24,984. From July to November of this year, maintenance expenses were $29,961.
“That’s $6,000 to $7,000 per month that we’re spending to keep our medic units running,” Young said.
Loans for three medic units will be paid off this budget cycle, Young said.
