The Culver Town Council held a public hearing Tuesday night to hear comments on the appropriation of funds for a new ambulance.
Clerk-Treasurer Karen Heim explained that the new ambulance is arriving soon but the money wasn’t earmarked in the budget for the replacement of an older truck. Heim said the older ambulance was overdue for replacement. It will be sold with the proceeds to be split between the town and Union Township.
The appropriation is in the amount of $63,932.50 which is the town’s portion of the purchase. The other half is coming from the township for the same amount.
There were no public comments given during the meeting.
Following the closure of the public hearing, the council unanimously approved the first reading of an ordinance that authorizes this additional appropriation.
