Carter County budget meeting tonight, to discuss the future of two EMS services

CARTER COUNTY, TN (WJHL) Tonight local leaders are giving the public a chance to voice their opinions on a budget shortfall.

That budget shortfall could lead to the closure of two emergency management stations.

At 6 O’clock tonight Carter County leaders will hold a regularly scheduled budget meeting.

Several residents have told News Channel 11, that they plan on showing up to voice their concern.

Recently Carter County EMS Director Terry Arnold announced he would close both Roan Mountain and Hampton stations, because there was not enough funding.

The meeting tonight could pass a resolution to help fund Carter County EMS, which would prevent the need to close both stations.

If the resolution passes, it would still have to pass the full Carter County Commission later on this month.
