ROTTERDAM, N.Y. – Nine part-time paramedics in the Town of Rotterdam are without a job starting Tuesday.
The paramedics were officially without a job as of midnight Monday. Two full-time paramedics will continue working in Rotterdam until the end of the year when the bidding process for a permanent Emergency Medical Services company for the town is complete.
Rotterdam residents were left angry and with questions unanswered after town leaders did not appear at the Rotterdam Neighborhood Association meeting Monday night.
The part-time employees are being let go from their position because the Rotterdam Police Chief realized he would have over 100 hours of uncovered paramedic time for the rest of the year. As a result, town officials will have Mohawk Ambulance temporarily take over until the permanent company is selected.
Bids for a permanent ambulance company open December 2, and applicants will make their presentations to the Town Board at a special town board meeting December 5. A final decision will be made December 12.
