"You THE CMH proposal calls for he City of Monmouth to con- .Unue to operate the service. The city is also to be responsible for billing and collecting for services, paying the ambulance personnel and operational costs, CMH will manage, supervise and coordinate the ambulance program. The hospital will train the personnel, staff the service, develop the work schedule and provide communications. The financial loss incurred will be shared-by -the city, county and hospital. Chenoweth . said the hospital has budgeted $15,000 and agreed to pay toat much annually as its share of the expected loss. He said . that a cost study based on figures for the past iftwo years shows that it takes about $91,000 per year to operate two ambulances. The revenue has averaged about $29,000. "Using these figures and deducting the $15,000 the hospital is willing to pay, this leaves about a $47,000 annual loss that the city and comity will have to share," said Chenoweth.

Pro-life panelists will include Dr. Jack Davies, professor and chairman of the Department of Anatomy at Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tenn.; John Gorby, McDonough County public defender and assistant state's attorney for McHenry County, and Mrs. Sandy Simmons, an Episcopalian minister's wife from St. Paul, Minn.

Rev. James Crangle, pastor of the Kirkwood United Presbyterian Church, will act as moderator at the panel discussion which will include a question and answer session. ambiguous He said •there have been chang* es in policies of payment for ambulance services where pub* lie aid and Medicare are concerned. 'The way they are now making payments may lessen he loss of providing ambulance services for people on aid or rnder Medicare," he said. CHENOWETH TOLD the other aldermen that representar tives from the Warren County Board will also be presenting the hospital's proposal to their group when the board meets next Monday. "Then the committees from the county, city and hospital are to meet next Tuesday and negotiate further," he said. Mayor ttemted said he considered the fact that the hos* pital's proposal does not pro* vide for replacement pi worn out ambulances, one item which will have to be negotiated before a final contract of operation is drawn up. Aid. R J. Chamtoerland also expressed concern that the proposal calls for one organization to do the hiring and staffing and another to handle the |>ay- roll. Chenoweth said he thought this should not prove a problem since committees organizing the operation will continue to meet on a regular basis after the new system is adopted.
