Title

Chief Administrative Office, Emergency Medical Services and Emergency Preparedness and Response Division, recommending the Board approve and authorize the Chair to sign Amendment 2 to Agreement for Services 001-S1711 with North Tahoe Fire Protection District, to extend the term of the Agreement through August 31, 2020.

 

FUNDING: County Service Area 3 Special Tax (Tahoe West Shore area) and fee for ambulance transportation.

Body

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND:

Chief Administrative Office (CAO) is recommending the Board approve and authorize the Chair to sign Amendment 2 to Agreement 001-S1711 with North Tahoe Fire Protection District (North Tahoe) with no changes to extend the Agreement through August 31, 2020. North Tahoe provides ambulance services within the West Shore zone of County Service Area 3. The County bills for the services and remits 93% of actual collections to North Tahoe. In addition, the special tax revenue collected within the zone is remitted to North Tahoe as payment for the services they provide. A one-year extension is requested because North Tahoe has requested a slight boundary change; however, additional time to research the request is needed. Once agreement is reached on the boundary issue, a new three-year agreement will be prepared for Board consideration.

 

The Board has previously determined that in accordance with County Ordinance Section 3.13.030, it is more economical and feasible to engage an independent contractor for ambulance transportation due to special skills and qualifications of the Contractor’s personnel involved in the performance of the work, lack of qualified County employees to perform the work, and that the Contractor will provide equipment, materials, facilities, administration or support services related to providing work that may not be feasibly provided by the County.

 

ALTERNATIVES:

Should the Board decline to execute Amendment 2 to Agreement #001-S1711 there would be a lapse in service in the CSA 3 Tahoe West Shore area
