STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - Starkville city leaders have approved the contract with Pafford EMS to provide an ambulance service within the city limits.

The city's Board of Aldermen approved the contract Tuesday on a 5-2 vote, reports the Starkville Daily News.

"The approval of the contract is contingent on Pafford agreeing to three different section revisions of the contract, which was initially rejected by the company," the newspaper reported.

The first two revisions related to liability and the final revision relates to subrogation.

If the company refuses to accept the revisions, there will not be a deal. If accepted, the preliminary start date is August 1 of the year.

"Pafford proposed it would provide four advanced life support ambulances within the city with three housed at First Stations One, Two and Five," the newspaper reports.
