Meadowlakes will continue to be served by the Marble Falls Area Emergency Medical Services for the next three years after City Council members unanimously approved a new contract with the organization at Tuesday's regular council meeting.

Meanwhile, Mayor Mary Ann Raesener told those in attendance a hotly contested citizens comment form introduced last month had not been seen by council members before being put into use.

The new contract with Marble Falls Area EMS goes into effect after the current deal expires Sept. 30. and includes a three percent escalation clause which will mean the city will pay an increase of $3,662 during the life of the contract. The city will pay MFAEMS $40,685 in fiscal year 2020; $41,906 in fiscal year 2021 and $43,162 in fiscal year 2022.

Johnny Campbell, executive director for Marble Falls Area EMS, appeared before the council to discuss the history of the ambulance service provider and the relationship his nonprofit corporation has had with Meadowlakes for the past 25 years. . . .
