Coweta Commission

EMS, dangerous dogs on Tuesday agenda

by Sarah Fay Campbell

A contract extension with the county’s emergency medical services provider, and a change to the EMS transport billing rates, are on the agenda for Tuesday night’s meeting of the Coweta County Board of Commissioners.

The meeting begins at 6 p.m. and is held in the county commission chambers on Perry Street.

Last month, the commissioners voted to seek a contract extension with American Medical Response so that county staff could explore the possibility of moving to “in house” EMS services through the Coweta County Fire Department.

Other items on the agenda include:

• Approval of proposed amendments to the dangerous dogs section of the animal control ordinance. No details on the proposed changes were available Friday. Information about the changes will be posted on times-herald.com when it becomes available.

• A public hearing on an amendment to the Residential Retirement Community and Care District related to architectural requirements, deed restrictions, and the mandatory homeowners’ association.

• Approval of a contract extension with Man Your Stations, which provides personnel for the Coweta County trash compactor sites.

• Execution of an agreement with the Coweta County Development Authority and the Shenandoah Property Owner’s Association.

• A recommendation from the board of trustees for the salary deferral and employee matching plans.

• A public hearing on changes to the county’s development ordinance regarding cluster mailbox stations and requirements for address markings where there are not individual mailboxes.
