City, County, CMH Discuss Operation Of Area Services MONMOUTH - Representatives of itfhe City of Monmouth, Warren County, and Community Memorial Hospital (CMH) met Wednesday night to discuss plans for changes in the local ambulance servve. CMH took over the operation of an ambulance service for the area about 2Mt years ago when the two Monmouth morticians who had previously provided such a service stated that they no longer wished to continue. CMH operated the service for about one year and then stated that it could not continue to be responsible for the financial deficit the operation sustained each month. The ambulance service was then taken over by the Monmouth Police Department and, according to Monmouth Mayor George Bersted, has continued to operate at a deficit. For the past several months officials of the city, county and hospital, have been working on a plan in which the responsibility for the ambulance service will be shared by the three entities. Present at last night's meeting were Carter Stanton and Kenneth Davis as representatives of Warren County, Aid. Donald Chenoweth and Mayor Bersted for the city, Roger Gurholt, James McCurdy, and Phil Wheeler, administrator and board members at CMH. Stanton said today that a concrete proposal has been developed. He said the representatives at the meeting wilj now take that proposal to their respective boards and meet again June 12 to act on the matter further. "By that time the City Council and the Warren County Board will both have met and we should have a good indication of how our. proposal was accepted," said Stanton. Do people who have Nite Lite service sleep better? Probably. Nite Lite is the automatic outdoor watchman. It switches on at dusk, casts a wide beam of light around your premises all night. At dawn, Nite Lite turns itself off. Outdoor lighting is one of the best security measures you can take. That's because thieves, vandals and prowlers much prefer to work under the cover of darkness. With Nite Lite service your premises are never dark after dark. If you have a home or a business in an area not illuminated by street lighting, consider Nite Lite service. A monthly rental charge covers installation, maintenance and all the electricity the light uses. For complete information, ask any Illinois Power Employee. And sleep tight.
