DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

We've recently learned about a proposal for Grady EMS to come to Dougherty County. 

An ambulance provider out of Atlanta, the company is the provider for Decatur and Worth counties. 

Last August, Grady EMS partnered with Phoebe Putney to help with transports between facilities.

The proposal was made in late October. 

In it, it said that the Southwest EMS alliance would pay for the system through an agreement with the county. 

It said it would have a full-time director.

All qualified Dougherty County EMS staff would be able to apply for job openings. 

Dougherty County Administrator Richard Crowdis acknowledges the county received the proposal. 

He said it has not been a priority. 

"It's just on the back burner with other priorities in front of it. There has been nothing to go forward at this time," said Crowdis.

According to the county clerk, from August to February 22nd, Dougherty County EMS ran 302 calls for Grady EMS. 

As of that date, Grady owed Dougherty County EMS $10,600.

According to the county clerk, some payments have been made since that date.
