12/04/12 143 W, 1 I - + 3 - 3 Apex to Keep Apex EMS

Here's an interesting story from the Cary News the other day, about the town of Apex's decision to maintain control of their EMS department. The county has been interested in absorbing the nine-member department into Wake County EMS. It currently collects EMS revenue on behalf of the town, and has declined to fund the chief and administrative assistant positions. (That's my word, "declines." The news story uses the word "refuses" which strikes me as editorially biased. Yours thoughts?) The positions aren't cost-effective, says the County Manager. The town has agreed to fund the positions while it continues negotiations with the county. See related story about the pending retirement of EMS Chief Nicky Winstead, and more on these fund issues. Next question, how old or current is this patch, that's still on my site?
