Is Algona ‘double-dipped’?
At least one Algona City councilmember voiced concerns that EMS should be considered an essential service, and everyone should pay their fair share to provide for the service in Kossuth County communities.
“We’re getting double-dipped here,” said councilmember Mike Sabin. “Yes, the (Kossuth) county is throwing in money but 60 percent of that is our money. The other towns in the county are getting away scot free. They can still have their services. If they don’t have their services, we have to come.”
