  1. Augusta tax payers should be crowding the commission meetings and demanding to know how a company with no monetary bid won a contract..imagine getting 3 bids from a painter and awarding it to the one that says we will start painting tomorrow but we will let you know the price later on..that’s just incompetency with tax payer dollars. It smacks of back room deals and payoffs. I cannot believe some state entity hasn’t investigated the fiduciary dealings of Augusta’s government. This has gone on for to long…

  2. Allen, here is the problem. Because last year’s Commissioners and this year’s new slate of Commissioners “screwed the hooch” on ratifying a new contract with Gold Cross, versus the stupid MOU that was in place Gold Cross got tired of playing the losing game. That, coupled with a 51% delinquency in the bill paying, Gold Cross relinquished the Zone. They no longer HAD to provide EMS to ARC. Central came into the game without a “bid”, because the State awarded the Zone to Central. For the moment, we are stuck with each other, like it or not. Contract or not, Central HAS to now provide EMS to ARC. Once they come up with “the number”, there will have to be a decision made. Up front, Central has stated since they are owned by an investment company their investors require a 10% return on their investment. My guess is that “the number” will be North of $2.3M per year. Decision time. Either ARC ponies up and pays “the number”, OR Central immediately vacates the Zone, like Gold Cross did, and pulls up the tent stakes. Then Ms. Sams creates a “month-to-month” with Central, until this disgusting saga repeats itself all over again.
