County weighs ambulance rate hike
The Daily Triplicate

Del Norte Ambulance Inc. may receive a 30-percent rate increase if the Del Norte County Board of Supervisors approves its request Tuesday.

The ambulance company initially asked for a 50-percent increase in June, but supervisors were reluctant to approve the hefty change.

Ron Sandler, president of Del Norte Ambulance, said the latest proposal is a result of ongoing negotiations with county staff.
