Henry Twp. Passes EMS Levy

Voters in Henry Township approved a tax levy for paying for access to EMS services from North Baltimore.

The 1.2 mill levy will run two years and generate $45,797 per year. The vote tally (unofficial) was nearly unanimous, at 34 to 1. The 35 votes is just seven and a half percent of registered township voters.

A $100,000 property will pay about $42 per year, according to the Wood County Auditor.

Township residents using the NB ambulance service, will be “soft billed” for these EMS runs, meaning the village will accept what insurance pays, with no additional billing.

For the past several years NB has been  transitioning from a volunteer EMS staff, to a paid staff, which will offer improved response to ambulance runs. Part of the plan is to hire additional staff for enhancing the 24 hour, seven day-a-week coverage. The village continues to have volunteer EMT’s, who go on medical runs when needed.

  1. I am glad that we have our EMS and know they do an excellent job,as well as the fire department. I question why there were so few voters.
