County unimpressed with appointments



January 11, 2012 - 12:00 AM

A committee with members appointed by Iola and Allen County to study ambulance service in the county may be scrapped in favor of one acting at behest of county commissioners alone.

Mayor Bill Shirley said Monday he had appointed Mike Russell, local radio newsman, and former Iola mayors Bill Maness and John McRae as the city’s committee representatives.

Dick Works’ response voiced that of all three commissioners. He “wasn’t pleased with the city selections,” saying he thought they had too much history with the controversy that has surrounded ambulance service in the county the past four years.
