CLINTON — After voting to approve its final Request for Proposal for a county ambulance plan Thursday, the ambulance advisory committee visited some familiar territory — residential 911 address signs.
The committee voted to send the plan to the county board for its approval at the board’s July 19 meeting. If the board passes the plan, the ambulance committee will solicit ambulance service companies to make presentations, which will take place in August.
