South Sioux City City Council approves paramedic assistance agreement
Michelle Kuester
Dakota County Star Editor

The South Sioux City City Council unanimously approved a paramedic assistance agreement at their meeting Tuesday that will allow the local fire department to provide emergency support services to surrounding communities and to charge per call.

Siouxland Paramedics will cease their services to these communities starting Jan. 1.

Council members Bruce Davis and Dennis Nelson expressed concern about South Sioux City always being covered, but fire chief Clint Merithew said that there are policies and procedures in place to ensure that.

“It will be our primary focus to take care of our community first,” he said.

The communities that will be serviced are all located in Dakota County, although Merithew noted there was interest in Dixon and Thurston counties, as well.
