The San Benito City Commission approved the recommendation of a committee specifically appointed to weigh in on the selection of a new ambulance provider.
At Tuesday’s regular city commission meeting, commissioners unanimously voted to contract with Med-Care EMS of McAllen, as recommended by the committee, at no cost to the city for a three-month evaluation period. Place 4 City Commissioner Celeste Zepeda Sanchez made the motion and was seconded by Plc. 1 Commissioner Antonio Gonzales.
The decision ends four years of service provided by Pro-Medic EMS, a San Juan-based emergency services provider that in 2010 was serving San Benito for $4,000 a month. Commissioners said this was necessary as Pro-Medic’s contract expired earlier this year.
