The Edgewater ParkTownship Committee has published a Request For Proposals due 3/13/12, 10 am for;
"BASIC LIFE SUPPORT EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES" REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS # EPTwp No. 2012-2.
If you check with the County 911 Central, the majority of the Squads calls are from Edgewater Park.
How can the Emergency Squad survive only being supported by Beverly City?
The answer is that it can't.
Now ask yourself why is the Edgewater Park Township Committee looking for someone else to provide the town with BASIC LIFE SUPPORT and EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES ?
Is this payback for a political friend who got caned when the was undergoing an internal investigation late last year? This political friend was the only person not rehired after the review was completed and the Squad started back in operations.
So what is the reason Edgewater Park Committee?
The Beverly-Edgewater Park Squad has been a important part of this community and has provided excellent service to the residences of Beverly and Edgewater Park. It's reputation only suffered during the tenure of the politically connected former head of the squad who was the only paid employee not rehired after the internal review was conducted.
If you care about the Squad and want to see who the bidders are, attend the public bid opening to be held at the Municipal Building, Tuesday March 13th at 10 AM. It is open to the public and the bid documents must be made available for the public to see.
It will be real interesting to see if the "politically connected" ex-paid member is bidding or has someone fronting for him.
Some interesting background, check the amount of money that Edgewater Park contributed to the squad before the "politically connected" ex-employee started working as head of the squad and how much was contributed after he took over running the squad. This information is available from the Township CFO or Township Clerk.
Lets see what happens now and in the future with Edgewater Park Township Budget Squad contribution.
