Our final request, Article 16, asks the voters to withdraw $195,000 from existing funds in the ambulance replacement fund to replace our oldest twelve year old ambulance. The fund is maintained by ambulance fees collected by the Town when we transport non residents and has, since its inception funded our ambulance replacement program. The article has no tax impact on the Kingston taxpayer and is only asking to spend funds already accrued. Replacing our ambulances on a twelve year cycle insures you we’ll be responding with the most up to date equipment, without delay, when even seconds can make the difference.
In closing, I want to thank the residents of Kingston for your past support on similar articles and hope to have your continued support this year on the above articles.
