DELL RAPIDS, S.D. (AP) - Voters in northern Minnehaha County
rejected a plan to set up a rural ambulance district.
It would have served Dell Rapids, Garretson, Baltic, Colton,
Sherman, Humboldt and surrounding townships by raising taxes about
$15 for every $100,000 in property value.
Residents outside of Hartford and Sioux Falls met last night in
Dell Rapids for a special election and defeated the effort 57
percent to 43 percent, with just over 1,100 votes cast.
The Minnehaha County Commission now has to come up with another
way to pay for rural ambulance service.
