(S.D.) - Wall pursuing plan to save ambulance service

By: John Thayer Posted at: 04/23/2012 07:02 AM
WALL, S.D. (AP) - Wall city officials are not giving up on their efforts to save ambulance service in the area around the western South Dakota tourist town.
The Pennington County Commission has rejected a proposal to form an ambulance tax district.
But the Wall City Council has agreed to set aside a day for a special election if enough petition signatures can be obtained to put an ambulance tax to a public vote.
Wall City Finance Officer Carolynn Anderson says the ambulance service will likely be lost unless the tax is passed. The tax could cover only a third of the overall ambulance expenses, with the rest paid by the city and fees collected for the service.
Wall is home to Wall Drug, a major tourist attraction.
