The Sherman City Council is expected to consider an ordinance Monday that would change the way the city permits and bills ambulance services. The Council will decide whether to change the Ambulance Service Code to permit licensed, private providers to pick up non-emergency patients. Currently, those providers must be franchised by the city.

A second change would provide flexibility in ambulance billings, allowing the city manager to update medicine lists without changing the code provisions. Council staff requested the change to create higher efficiency in the billing process.


The Council is also expected to approve a resolution recognizing the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr. The meeting will be help at 5 p.m. in the Council Chambers.
