The Osceola County Board of Commissioners, at its meeting last week, accepted the USDA grant for up to $50,000 to buy an ambulance remount.

The commissioners also approved the Meceola Consolidated Central Dispatch Authority local surcharge rate of $2.25 device per month.

“We have to renew the surcharge on the phones for devices and it’s a monthly charge, so we had to approve that, which we did,” commissioners chairman Larry Emig said.

Commissioners then voted to approve the Central Dispatch Equipment Acquisition and financing contract as presented.

Commissioners approved the Area Agency on Aging of Western Michigan amendment for the existing PoS agreement.

“There’s some additional funds available for us to use on the Commission on Aging, Emig said.

The county’s new medical examiner, Dr. Joyce DeYoung, was at the meeting to greet the commissioners.

“She gave us an update on what they’ve been doing, how they operate and that they look forward to working with us,” Emig said.
