The Effingham County Board will hold a special Board meeting on Tuesday, May 23rd at 3:00pm.
At the meeting, the Board will hold a closed executive session regarding the Ambulance Contract and Litigation. In March, the Board moved to end the litigation with Altamont Ambulance following nearly three years of legal battles. The two parties had reached a settlement which stated that both parties would drop any claims about one-another from the original case. Additionally, neither party was required to pay each other money regarding the resolution of the litigation. Altamont Ambulance and Abbott EMS will also work together to ensure a smooth transition with no drop in EMS coverage.
The Effingham County Board will meet in the 3rd Floor Board Room of the Effingham County Office Building.
