FERRIS- An public forum is listed on Monday nights agenda for a special meeting on the city's emergency services.
Monday, July 26 located at city hall at 6:30 p.m. council will decide on the EMS budget.
In previous meetings, it has been reported by City Manager Eric Strong the contract to have CareFlite provide emergency 24/7 protection would cost $36,000 with an additional $10,000 for the utilities.
