County takes over Vet Transportation 17 Jul 13

Brown County will be taking over the hospital van service from the Disabled Americans’ Veterans program.  Brown County Veterans’ Service Officer Greg Peterson says everything will remain pretty much the same, but this move removes some of the financial responsibilities from the DAV.Peterson says there should be no change in the hospital transportation, pickup times and locations should be the same.  However, the county will now pick up the fuel bill and drivers will get their paychecks from the county.  The DAV will still house the van and fuel will be purchased from the County Highway Department.
