Holmes County commissioners discuss Sasnett’s ‘yard’ once more

McCormick confirmed that the equipment, which is attached to one of the local towers, would be of no financial concern unless something should happen to it, which then it was covered under the county’s insurance.

When asked why it had been in the hospital’s care, McCormick said that it had been so long ago placed in the hospital’s care that there’s no account as to why.

The board approved of McCormick’s request to submit six grants for a new ambulance, a new cardiac monitor and laptop for an ambulance.

The board also approved of EMS new hires for the non-emergency transport van. McCormick explained that they are part-time and on call, meaning they wouldn’t be used unless they were needed and there would be no additional money going in to pay for them.

Merchant informed the board that there was a request from a Haney Technical Center student wishing to intern for the county.

“She would need direct supervision but her work would be at no cost to the county,” said Merchant. “We could use her, pending proof of being covered under liability.”

The motion died due to a lack of a second.
