That's according to Presiding Commissioner, Rick Hull, who said 1of the options is remaining at the current location at the Trenton Fire Station building.

Hull noted the Commission is considering all options for the good of taxpayers.

The Commission last month received a letter from Trenton City Administrator, Kerry Sampson saying the City is unable to lease space for the ambulance at the Fire Station under the current terms----due to high maintenance and energy costs.

The letter said the City would be willing to enter into a new lease beginning July 1st with higher rent and the County sharing the utility costs based on square footage occup0ied----same as at the Law Enforcement Center.

The County currently pays $1,150 a month rent, at the fire station, with no extra cost for utilities.

The letter from City Administrator Sampson includes a $300 a month increase in the rent.

Hull explained Sampson is to provide the County with information that would allow the County to get an idea of how much utility costs it would have at the current location.

Presiding Commissioner Hull has said the existing lease requires 60 days notice if any changes are to be made.

Hull also says 2 or 3 persons have asked the County if it would be interested in purchasing a building to house the ambulance service. Commissioners were to have met this morning with Phylis Dible regarding a structure on North Oklahoma Avenue. However, Hull said Commissioners did not look at it because the building is too small and would need an addition. He noted there are other locations in town that are adequate and only would need to be remodeled . However, he noted the site owned by Ms. Dible remains 1of the options.

Still, another option would be to construct a building.

The Commission and Emergency Responders met Tuesday night regarding 911 radios. The maintenance provider for the radios is to look at what can be done about correcting what Hull called a few dead spots.
