Proposals being sought for EMS site

March 24, 2021

HUNTSVILLE — The Scott County Board of County Commissioners is accepting proposals for real estate suitable for the relocation of the Scott County Ambulance Service.

The ambulance service is currently headquartered at Big South Fork Medical Center in Oneida. However, Scott County will soon build a new facility to replace the aging structure.

Commissioners have considered two pieces of property that were submitted during the last round of bidding: one site on Industrial Lane in Oneida, and a second site at the intersection of Paint Rock Road and Buffalo Road in Oneida. By a 9-2 vote on March 15, commissioners rejected both of those proposals, due to cost concerns.

The deadline for proposals to be submitted is noon on Thursday, April 1. The Scott County Finance Committee will meet in special session that same afternoon to unseal and consider any proposals that have been submitted.

For more information on the specifics of the proposal, contact the Scott County Department of Finance.
