A remodel of the Tomah Area Ambulance Service ambulance barn will be discussed at the November Tomah City Council meeting, starting at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Tomah City Hall.
The council’s Committee of the Whole will meet Monday at 6:30 p.m.
The barn has been found insufficient to meet the needs of TAAS since it has changed in status from a part-time service to a full-time paramedic service, according to TAAS staff. The cost is estimated at $90,000.
The council will discuss the costs to remodel the facility as well as a future site for a new building at the new Tomah Memorial Hospital site. Hospital CEO Phil Stuart has given permission for the city to choose a location from several sites on the campus. The land would be a donation and come at no cost to TAAS.
Also during the Tuesday meeting, the council will:
Consider an ordinance regarding fences and hedges. Last month it gave initial approval to requiring property owners to get signed permission from an adjacent property owner to build a fence closer than two feet to the property line and provide a property survey map.
Vote on a resolution authorizing a change in the annual hours and compensation for the Tomah Fire Department chief. The proposal would increase the position from half-time to three-quarters time and boost the wage from $24,915 to $50,467.
