AUGUSTA — The Augusta Commission could end the city’s contract with Gold Cross EMS this week.
The city is paying Gold Cross $1.1 million dollars a year to provide ambulance service.
But now that the state has made Gold Cross the primary provider for Augusta, some commissioners want to know why the city continues to pay the company.
Gold Cross officials say the money is needed as a subsidy for poor people who don’t pay their bills.
The commission will discuss this item on Tuesday at 2:00 p.m. in the municipal building.
Also on the agenda for Tuesday:
Augusta’s Downtown Advisory Panel will be officially re-established this week.
Commissioners will approve a $1.2 million dollar study for the downtown area.
And the final SPLOST-7 Project List will be approved.
