Cameron Prepares for November Ambulance Tax Vote

Like St. Joseph, Cameron voters will decide on a tax to fund their ambulance district.
(CAMERON, Mo.) Voters in Cameron will vote on an ambulance tax.

The tax would give more funds to the city's Ambulance District.

The city says that changes to the Medicare system have affected their revenue.

"Right now we currently staff two vehicles approximately sixty percent of the time and our goal was to staff at least two vehicles one hundred percent of the time," Cameron Ambulance District spokesman Mark Hill said. "To do that we need more funding."

Hill said the extra funding would allow them to hire more staff and upgrade their aging fleet.

Citizens will vote on the measure November 5.
