Representatives for Traill County’s two ambulance services didn’t object Tuesday to a county-backed plan to ask voters for a tax increase to pay for emergency services.

The Traill County Board of Commissioners signaled its intent Tuesday to place a measure on the June 11 ballot that would increase the cap on the county’s emergency medical services levy from 4 to 15 mills.

Official action placing the issue on the ballot is expected to be taken Feb. 18.

The pending move will negate the need for the West Traill Ambulance and F-M Ambulance and their supporters to collect signatures for a petition that would force a public vote on the proposed tax increase.
