Lynden weighs in on ambulance fee


KGMI News Reporting

LYNDEN, Wash. – The City of Lynden held a public hearing on a proposed utility fee to pay for ambulance services Tuesday night.

Mayor Scott Korthuis says the law allows them to charge up to $11.99 a month, but nobody in his office or the city council wants to charge that much.

They say if they don’t charge anything at all, they will have to cut service putting a major dent in their current 5 to 8 minute response time.

Korthuis says he’d pay the fee.
