NY State Supreme Court Rules in Favor of City Council in Ambulance Dispute

RENSSELAER (NY) – A New York State Supreme Court judge has ruled in favor of the common council, which allows the council to continue running its Mohawk Ambulance instead of a having to use a new ambulance service, as reported by ABC affiliate News10.

Rensselaer Mayor Michael Stammel secretly signed a new contract with Empire Ambulance without submitting the contract to be approved by the common council.

Stammel said he ended the contract with Mohawk Ambulance in favor of a new agreement with Empire Ambulance, which has a garage on Second Street, where they will store their vehicles. Stammel said he signed the deal so the city could have an ambulance service that operates out of the city instead of having to come from other parts of the Capital region.
