Illinois Ambulance Service on Chopping Block

PEORIA HEIGHTS, Ill. (WYZZ) – As the November election draws closer people in Peoria Heights have a big decision on their hands. They’ll soon vote to either raise property taxes to help pay for their village ambulance service or lose it altogether. If voters choose not raise taxes, ambulance services would go to AMT Paramedics, which serves several communities. At a public hearing Tuesday night, all of the residents who spoke said they support keeping the service and paying a little extra. Well, everyone except one resident.
