Why does WTRS bill?
Years ago an ambulance response was a free service provided by community volunteers. Expenses were handled with donations and fund drives. However, as the years have gone by, increased needs of the community have forced our organization to provide a paid staff. The required training and time commitment increased to the point that volunteers were unable to contribute as much time that was needed. Also, increased regulation and increased costs of running a business, require us to bill for our services.
WTRS is NOT part of the Town or any of the Fire Districts. We do not receive any operating funds from your taxes. In the early 2000's a bond was passed that would allow our two buildings to be constructed with a tax. You should see that on your tax bill each year. That money goes completely to the payoff of the mortgage for the buildings.
