Letter: Ambulance bill?

To the Editor:

Imagine my relief when the paramedics arrive promptly and whisked my husband off to the emergency department in our time of need.

Now imagine receiving a bill from the McHenry Township Fire Department for $588 to cover the ambulance for that call. Am I the only one who was under the mistaken assumption that our property taxes would cover such a charge?
