Editor’s note: The following was compiled from the Huntsville Village Council regular meeting minutes from July 24.
HUNTSVILLE – The Huntsville EMS now has a new way to submit bills for ambulance runs, council learned during its July 24 meeting.
EMS Clerk Phyllis Hall approached council to state the department will no longer be working with Medicare when it comes to billing ambulance runs. Hall said she is now working with a new computer program and Cigna will now be handling all billing from ambulance runs.
At the present moment, Hall said all Cigna is requiring is a $523 fee for recertification. Following a discussion on the matter, council agreed to pay the fee.
In other business:
•Council noted beggar’s night for county residents will be Wednesday, Oct. 31, instead of the usual last Thursday of the month.
•Village Solicitor Matthew Chamberlain informed council he spoke with Logan County Sheriff’s Detective Phil Bailey about concerns over sexual predators in the area. Chamberlain said that since all the sexual predators were now living outside the limits of the village, there would be no further legal proceedings.
•Several council members brought to the attention of Mayor William Jenkins concerns over several solicitors recently canvasing the village. Residents were advised to be aware of scams and call the sheriff’s office with any questions about a solicitor or products they are selling.
•Neighborhood Watch will meet at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 21 at the Huntsville Municipal Building.
