City reapplies for ambulance grant after finding it is eligible
Published: January 22,2013
STARKVILLE — The city of Starkville is reapplying for an ambulance services grant for which officials previously thought they were ineligible.
Starkville Mayor Parker Wiseman tells The Commercial Dispatch the city is in the process of working with OCH Regional Medical Center to prepare a new application for the $14,000 grant provided by the Emergency Medical Services Operating Fund.
The city had previously submitted an application for the grant, which it does annually, but was denied this year because it was reported in the application that no city representative had attended a mandatory administration meeting.
But Wiseman was informed that the hospital’s CFO Susan Russell, who had attended the meeting on behalf of the county, qualified as a representative for the city.
