KITTITAS COUNTY <br />EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES DIVISION <br />Office of the: <br />MEDICAL PROGRAM DIRECTOR EMS COORDINATOR EMS & TRAUMA CARE COUNCIL <br />October 20, 2020 <br />TO: Kittitas County Council of Government Members <br />FROM: Cheryl L. Burrows <br />EMS Coordinator <br />SUBJECT: UPDATE FOR ME ING - Proposed 2021 KCEMSD Budget Plan - REVISED <br />The Proposed 2021 Budget Plan for the Kittitas County EMS Division was sent out to all <br />participating jurisdictions August 7th for review and planning. At this month's EMS Council <br />meeting, the 2021 Budget Plan was revisited and reduced from a proposed 7% increase to a I% <br />increase for 2021. <br />Background ...... The 7% increase for 2021 was mainly due to the 2020 Wage Survey adjustment <br />approved by the County Commissioners for the EMS Office staff positions. Due to the transition <br />between EMS Assistants in 2020, the EMS Council projects a 2020 budget credit for the <br />jurisdictions that offsets the overall increase needed for 2021. A conservative estimate of the <br />2020 credit = $30,000. <br />The individual jurisdiction percentage is based on population distribution. Population <br />distribution changes are reflected in the proposed budget plan. Population percentages are <br />derived from the Office of Financial Management, Forecasting Division, dated April 1, 2020. <br />There are no distribution changes for 2021. <br />The Proposed 2021 Budget Plan for the Kittitas County EMS Division will be on the KCCOG <br />agenda this week in accordance with the Inter -Local Cooperation Agreement for <br />recommendation of the Participating Jurisdictions. I will attend the meeting to answer any <br />questions. Please contact me at the number below if you have any questions or require my <br />attendance at a future meeting. <br />Thank you, <br />Cheryl <br />cc: Lee Hadden, Chairman, Kittitas County EMS & Trauma Care Council <br />Attachment — Proposed 2021 Budget Plan - Revised <br />Mission: <br />"To advance the emergency medical services and trauma care system through a cooperative coordination of <br />all stakeholders to meet the growing needs of our community." <br />PO Box 821, 211 E.
