The Hopkinsville-Christian County Ambulance Board approved a tentative budget at its meeting this afternoon.
Deputy Chief Eric Bleidt says the 2.8 million dollar spending plan is fiscally sound and he believes it serves the best interest of Christian County tax payers. Deputy Chief Bleidt says there are line items in the budget to purchase medical equipment and another ambulance.
The tentative budget would also allow the hiring of six new employees, according to Bleidt.
Final approval of the budget could come at next month’s meeting. The board also approved a routine budget amendment to the current year spending plan to account for fuel costs and other minor items.
