Port Jefferson Village Looks to Save on Ambulance Protection

Mayor, Treasurer: Rates for protection are based on an outdated population survey.

Port Jefferson village officials are looking to work out an agreement with the Port Jefferson Volunteer Ambulance Corps that would save money on ambulance coverage, according to a report published in The Port Times Record.

The agreement is based on a Long Island Power Authority population survey that the Mt. Sinai Ambulance District uses to determine shares of the costs associated with running the Port Jefferson Volunteer Ambulance Corps. The village does not have its own ambulance district and instead contracts with Mt. Sinai, which provides the services through the PJVAC.

According to The Port Times Record, Mayor Margot Garant said that the population survey being used to set the agreement is out-of-date.

"We're willing to work with them … but we're just trying to make sure, as a taxing entity, [that] they have to give us a place at the table," Garant said.
