Tifonka Would Like Help On Ambulance A committee of three men from the Chamber of Commerce and several other Interested mem- bers met with the Titonka council to try and work out plans so the community will have ambulance service. It was decided to have the committee, council, mayor and others interested in the problem try to meet with the county board of supervisors at the earliest possible date. The three men forming the ambulance study committee are Alfred Redenius, Holland Fox and Gary Sleper. A group of Chamber of Commerce members, the committee, mayor and three council members met with four members of the board of supervisors and Algona mayor Bill Finn Monday evening. The supervisors have recently allocated $400 per month to the town of Algona to help support an ambulance in that community and it was hoped that they might also help Titonka. Tuesday, August 1, 1967 Algona (la.) Upper DCS Moines-7 No definite agreement was reached, but it was agreed that the committee check into the cost of an "emergency unit" and then meet with the supervisors again. It is hoped that a serviceable station wagon can be purchased and equipped to fill the void that was created when the local ambulance service was dis- continued, ft is presumed that the town will purchase it and that it will be manned by volunteers. If some money is obtained from the county, it will be used to help pay the costs of the service. There will be a charge for those using the "emergency unit" and this will be used to pay the driver and his helper. x I f 1 i i GOOD NEIGHBORS TO KNOW •e- AROUND THE TOWN& COUNTRY Meet Richard Lickteig Of Wesley Our Country Neighbor this week is Richard Lickteig, who farms 1/2 mile east of Sexton on highway 18.
