applications for Certificate of Public Convenience and

The City of Lincoln is considering establishing an emergency
medical service pursuant to Nebraska Revised Statute Sec. 13-

about January 1, 2001, provide paramedic ambulance service
within the City limits and potentially to Lancaster County as
a whole. The City will bill for such service at rates set by
the City. It is anticipated the City will either contract for
or authorize through a certificate of public convenience and
necessity private ambulance provider(s) to provide back-up in
the event of catastrophe, and to provide non-emergency inter-
facility transportation. The City will also contract for or
otherwise provide for the billing and collection services
associated with providing ambulance service.
A forecast of revenues and expenditures has been prepared.
The financial position has been prepared with known and
historical costs, along with prevailing market revenue
information. The estimated initial cost of establishing such
service is $108,000. The estimated continuing cost of
operating such service is $2,491,000 per year, net allowances
for bad debts of $1,662,000 per year.
A detailed explanation of the proposed plan is on file with
the City Clerk.
Hearing on this matter will be had:
