Mercer County Ambulance looks to the future
By Lee Coleman
The Mercer County Ambulance Service is a vital part of the community and as such, the MCA Board of Directors have incorporated some changes. Chairman Brad Zimmerman believes they are all for the best of the service.
MCA continues its search for a new manager while changing some by-laws and initiating the process for purchasing a much-needed new ambulance.
The change to the by-laws now prohibits MCA employees or volunteers from serving on the Board of Directors.
“This change has been contemplated for several years,” Zimmerman explained. “This year at our annual meeting, we elected to make the change to the by-laws. This is more of an industry standard. The Board felt it was a good move to ensure and avoid an uncomfortable or bad situation in the future.
