Oglesby City Council could take action on ambulance deal Monday

Posted by wlpo on August 17, 2012

After weeks of tension, a decision on if the Oglesby Ambulance Service has to change the way it operates should come Monday night.

The Oglesby City Council meets at 7 and the highlight of the agenda is voting on a wage and salary ordinance for the ambulance service.  The council put on file the ordinance two weeks ago which cuts hours and pay for the ambulance director and caps the total hours at 995 for all part-time ambulance workers.

Mayor Don Finley and Commissioner Paul Danekas want the ordinance change because some part-time ambulance workers put in over a thousand hours which automatically makes them eligible for a pension.  Commissioner Tom Porter and ambulance employees don’t think the current system should be changed.

Before the council votes on the ambulance issue, they also will talk about a letter from the city’s ambulance board.
