Community Action Board Votes to Support Ambulance Fees

The Montgomery County Community Action Board (“CAB”), which advises the government regarding the needs of Montgomery’s low-income people, voted at its October 26 meeting to support the passage of Ambulance Fees, concluding that low-income families would not be adversely affected by the passage of Ballot Question A.

The CAB expressed its concern regarding the need to maintain funding for critically needed safety net services during a very difficult budget year. The board noted that it is not possible to further reduce the budget without seriously harming the County’s low-income and working poor families, who continue to struggle to make ends meet during this recession.
