On a 3-2 vote, the Jackson County Board of Commissioners agreed Monday night on a design and budget for new EMS stations in Commerce and West Jackson. The Commerce location would be on Steve Reynolds Industrial Boulevard about a half mile off Hwy. 98, according to public safety director Steve Nichols.
A new EMS station is also planned for Plainview but that design and budget were not included in the vote because the land acquisition is not finished. The design of the EMS station in Plainview is expected to be the same but the specifics won’t be determined until the land purchase is finalized.
