Doniphan Co ambulance service contract approved

Doniphan Co Courthouse

(KNZA)--The Doniphan County Commission voted Monday to enter into a five-year contract with Holton-based Tech's Inc. to provide ambulance service in the county.

That comes after Doniphan County voters during the August 2 primary election approved the imposition of a one-percent countywide retailers sales tax to fund EMS operations, beginning in 2023.  

County Attorney Charlies Baskins reviewed the agreement, which will begin January 1st, 2023 and run through December 31, 2027. On hand for the discussion were representatives of Tech's Inc., several Doniphan County EMS committee members and Emergency Management Coordinator Julie Meng.

Under the contract, Tech's Inc., doing business as Doniphan County EMS, will provide ambulance service to the county with two fully staffed licensed ambulances with advance life support on both units.  One unit will be stationed in Troy and the other unit will be stationed in Highland.

 Doniphan County will provide $1,089,713 in funding annually to Tech's Inc. for the services, with payments to be made in twelve equal monthly installments of $90,809.

 Buchanan County, Missouri EMS will continue to service the Elwood area.
