Public hearing to be held on EMS subscription

Published 11:22 am Wednesday, November 14, 2018

In April, former Emergency Services Chief Vince Holt suggested that Franklin’s City Council look into implementing an EMS subscription service for city residence, similar to what Southampton County and Isle of Wight County offer their residents. The subscription would allow city residents to voluntarily pay $60 annually, and in exchange, not have to pay for any subsequent Ems services they might need that year.

This suggestion will be put to a public hearing on Monday, Nov. 26, during the council’s next regular scheduled meeting.

The meeting will start at 7 p.m. and will be in the council chamber of City Hall, 207 W. Second Ave., Franklin.

The proposed $60 subscription fee, if implemented, would cover every member of the subscriber’s household.
