New Fairfield needs to allocate more for paramedic, ambulance services

Following an increase in paramedic and ambulance services from Nuvance Health, New Fairfield officials are looking at the possibility of changing providers.  The Board of Selectmen voted to recommend appropriating $22,500 from the surplus or unassigned fund balance for the services.  First Selectman Pat Del Monaco says during budget season, Nuvance sent a letter saying that they would be increasing the fee paid for paramedic and EMT services by 2 percent.  Now, due to additional costs on their end, they are increasing that to a 5-percent hike over last year.  The Board of Finance is being asked to allocate the difference.  Del Monaco notes that other towns also reported receiving the increase.  She foresees going out to bid because the town is unsure about the large increase in future years.
