AMBULANCE CHARGE

The Town of Wynona has been asked to charge local households a mandatory $7 monthly fee for ambulance services.

Hominy EMS officials, who made the request, say the company has been providing Wynona citizens with ambulance services for several years at no cost besides the normal billings for services rendered. They say that can no longer be the case due to the rising costs of their everyday operations.

Without payment of mandatory dues/fees, Hominy EMS will no longer be able to provide ambulance services for Wynona residents, the company’s officials said.

Wynona Town Council members will be voting on the ambulance service request at a Sept. 20 meeting. Local residents are encouraged to attend and make comments before a decision is made, town officials said.

Wynonans who cannot come to the meeting can express their opinions by calling town hall at 918-846-2526.
