SPECIAL SERVICE DISTRICT PRESENTATION FOR BOND COUNTY BOARD

 

The Bond County Board met Tuesday.  During the meeting, representatives from Greenville Regional Hospital were on hand to discuss the special service district, an agreement that supplies the county with ambulance service.  The information presented during the program showed that the program has seen some big improvements over the last few years, including more training for personnel. This training has allowed many persons to become paramedics, which is one of the highest levels of training possible for EMTs.  The board has previously asked a question about the jump in salary costs over the last year.  It was explained that the state required an emergency medial services director to be hired to allow Greenville Regional Hospital to become a resource hospital.  The designation as a resource hospital allows better care and a better continuation of care for patients being transported by EMS to Greenville Regional Hospital.  The board thanked the Greenville Regional Hospital for their work and their presentation. 

 

The Bond County Board also approved a liquor license for Karen and Charles Sharp, doing business as Cunettos, which will operate where Mabry’s restaurant was located.  The board approved a $2,000 Anti-Crime Fund Distribution request from State’s Attorney Chris Bauer to help pay expenses for an upcoming anti-domestic violence seminar.
