Havre plans to raise ambulance service prices
The price of an ambulance ride could be going up by a few hundred dollars soon.
At Monday night's Havre City Council meeting, during council member Allen "Woody" Woodwick's report of that day's Finance Committee meeting, he talked about a request from Havre Fire Chief Dave Sheppard to change the current ambulance rates from a $300 base and $10 per mile to a $500 base and a $12 per mile fee, for the department's 1,200 annual calls.
"A lot of these (surrounding) counties cost more and they have volunteer firefighters, " Woodwick said. "So I don't think we're out of line here. "
