Crittenden Council suggests taxing district to solve EMS funding

-A A +A
By Amanda Kelly, Staff Writer

Crittenden City Council seemed unimpressed by Dry Ridge Mayor Jim Wells’ EMS cost-sharing plan during a Nov. 7 meeting. 

Instead, Crittenden asked about alternatives to the plan, including the creation of taxing districts as a way to pay for an ever-increasing EMS service budget Dry Ridge has funded for the last 17 years. 

Wells said Dry Ridge has paid $18 million in expenditures to provide a county-wide EMS service over 17 years, but the city can no longer afford to pay as costs increase.
