ANTIGO - The city of Antigo doesn't want to run an ambulance service anymore. It's just too expensive. Instead, the city's new hospital may take over.
"We have a great ambulance service now and that's our biggest concern here is being able to maintain that... As with a lot of people our problem is financial," said City of Antigo’s Mayor, Bill Brandt.
Each year it costs around 2 million dollars to run the ambulance service for Antigo and 10 surrounding townships.
About half of that is paid by the city and county through taxes... The other half is paid by the user fees.
