Napoleon council: Ambulance purchase on hold

By HEATHER BAUGHMAN Staff Writer Published:

NAPOLEON Controversy relating to the purchase of two ambulances for Napoleon Fire and Rescue came from several angles during Napoleon City Councils Monday night meeting. Fire Chief Lynn Hancock was on hand to present details for the two Life Star rescue units he was asking council to approve for purchase. On hand was a representative of Braun Industries, a Life Star distributor, to also answer questions and to show council a similar unit he had brought to town. City manager Jon Bisher reported the city and the fire department have been working on specifications for two new rescue units for about two years in preparation for the upcoming closing of the Perry Street river bridge.
