Hannibal City Council unanimously approves air ambulatory service

Posted:
HANNIBAL, Mo. (WGEM) -

The Hannibal City Council unanimously voted to allow a company to establish a medical helicopter base.  

Survival flight will set up at Hannibal Regional Airport.  It's not affiliated with any hospital, but will respond to emergency calls or provide life flights between medical facilities.  City Manager Jeff LaGarce says talks with Survival flight have been going on for a year.  The company will bring eight new jobs to the city.

"But it does provide air ambulance services right here in Hannibal so if air ambulance service is needed, it's probably only 3 to 4 minutes away, maybe even less," LaGarce said. 

The city council also voted to allow Hannibal voters to approve a recycling fee increase.  The measure will appear on the November Ballot.

Council members also approved a MoDOT proposal to upgrade Mark Twain Avenue and expand the sidewalks leading into Downtown Hannibal.  That project won't start until 2015.
