Contract signing

Interim Thurman Supervisor Al Vasak watches Thurman Emergency Medical Services President Jim Desourdy sign a contract Aug. 17 with the town of Thurman for 2010 services. The contract had been held up since late last year, due to an ongoing dispute over the ambulance squad bookkeeping practices, their accumulated fund balance and their former low response rate to emergency calls. Squad officials had argued that their finances were straight, but town officials wanted more proof - a dispute that was a factor in the resignation of the town Supervisor and a board member. The signature on the contract approved $33,468 for the squad, payment for a full year's services minus a sum spent on attorney's fees in negotiating the dispute.
