A Unicoi County resident said that he will take legal action to halt the county’s contract proposal with MedicOne Medical Response regarding its bid for ambulance services in the county, the Johnson City Press reports. Johnny Day contends that although the county’s solicitation through a newspaper ad technically meets the legal requirement for bids of this nature, the advertisement was limited to just one day of publication and that several other companies were not given a fair shake in consideration. Unicoi County Mayor Garland “Bubba” Evely told Day, along with other concerned residents, that they can present their concerns to the county’s Ambulance Committee at its next meeting, which is Thursday at 4 p.m., EST in the Unicoi County Mayor's Conference Room — Unicoi County Courthouse.
