LANCASTER - Two companies made their pitches to Garrard Fiscal Court Monday night to take over billing for the county's ambulance service.
Representatives from Software Development Inc. and 911 Billing made presentations to magistrates about how their companies could help the county generate more income from its ambulance service, said Deputy County Clerk Sharon Caldwell.
"They didn't tell any figures last night, they just talked about what their companies could do," Caldwell said.
The magistrates tabled the matter to give them time to consider each proposal and will address it again at a special meeting called for 7 p.m. June 24, Caldwell said.
At a fiscal court meeting last month, ambulance service Manager Colby Arnold said the county spends about $38,000 a year on its billing and generates an average of $87 per ambulance run. The county is looking at outsourcing it ambulance billing to reduce the cost of the billing service while collecting more money for each run.
