NORTH KINGSVILLE — The village’s ambulance will be getting an upgrade soon.

Village Council approved the purchase of a CAD, or computer aided dispatching system, at Monday night’s meeting.

Computer aided dispatching helps improve dispatching services, according to the Department of Justice.

The CAD system is expected to cost $1,100.

“[The CAD system] will keep us in contact and computerize our ambulance,” Councilperson Ron McVoy said.

• A plan for flooding issues on Forrest Drive is being discussed.

“We think we have a pretty decent plan to get rid of the water and get it out to the drainage ditch on Route 20,” McVoy said.

Multiple village residents have complained about issues with flooding on Forrest Drive.

Most recently, Kimberly Plants, who lives on Forrest Drive, came to the last council meeting of 2019 to ask what was being done about the issue.

“I know it’s not going to be a cheap fix but it’s not my making or my neighbor’s making. It needs addressed and it needs fixed because it’s damaging our property,” Plants said in December.

The issues were first brought up 2018, Plants said.

• County commissioners are planning to hold a meeting in the North Kingsville municipal building on Jan. 28 at 6:30 p.m., Mayor Mindy Bisbee said. The meeting is part of an initiative to hold commissioners meetings throughout the county. The meeting was scheduled for Oct. 29 of last year before being cancelled.
