Harmony to purchase new ambulance


Fri, Feb 15th, 2013
Posted in Harmony Government

It was approved for the Harmony Ambulance service to go ahead with plans to purchase a new ambluance. Larry Nolan spoke to the council at their meeting on February 12.

According to Nolan, the current ambulance is a 2010 with 45,000 miles. Since they only have one ambulance, they had decided they should trade it in every 3-4 years.

“If we had two I wouldn’t even worry about it,” he said.

City Administrator Jerome Illg said the value of the current ambulance will go down a lot after the five-year mark. Nolan said they are considering getting a four-wheel drive this time, since they often have to go to rural areas in the winter and sometimes it can be difficult. They will look into several options and get back to the council.

After an ambulance is purchased, the turnaround time to get it and have it ready for service will be at least six months.

1st Ave Street Project

Illg updated the council on the 1st Avenue street project possibly coming up this summer. He has spoken with the county engineer about what assistance the county will provide on the project.

Since the county is planning to do a full-depth reclaim and repave to that road from Center Street to 3rd Street, it is a perfect time for the city to do the work needed underneath the road with storm sewer, and the county would like to get it done this year.

At the last meeting, it was understood that after the county did this project, they were planning on turning over the road to the city in ten years. Illg explained there was a misunderstanding, and now the turnaround time is 25 years. Illg said they do not plan to turn the road back to the city.

“They may look to us for some sort of maintenance,” said Illg.

Illg said he would like to send notices out to residents so they can have a meeting to discuss it in March, or possibly April. He said the extent to which they repair and reconstruct the curb sections and sidewalks will depend on how much the county contributes. Right now, the county’s policy is they do not share the cost for sidewalk, curb and gutter, or storm sewer.

When asked if he had talked to the school yet, Illg replied he had spoken with Superintendent Richard Keith. The plan right now is to only replace the sidewalk on the school side of the road.
