village ambulance employees were laid off
At a meeting Monday evening, the Village of Minoa announced it will turn over staffing of the village ambulance service to WAVES, a not-for-profit organization. WAVES has been overseeing operation of the ambulance service since earlier this year. WAVES will now staff the service as well. Right after village ambulance employees were laid off, WAVES interviewed them with the goal of putting some, if not all, on their payroll instead. The mayor says the decision was necessary since it’s not getting the same amount of money from the county that it used to. Village of Minoa Mayor Dick Donovan said, "It's the best deal we can come up with. It keeps a community-based ambulance owned by the village of Minoa with a staff of people from WAVES.
