Clay Counties ambulance service is still alive, but barely. The drop-dead date for closure has come and gone, with Clay's 911 officials, the Clay County Emergency Ambulance Authority and county commissioners, the object of an injunction to keep the Lizemore and Big Otter sub-stations in operation.

The injunction also called for a halt in the removal of equipment from the 911 center.

The document accuses the providers, public officials and board members of not doing their job.

A hearing on the injunction is set for January 22.

Clay County Commissioner Jimmy Sams is pushing for an audit of the ambulance authority. The audit would go back to 1999.

The Clay ambulance service has been on the verge of bankruptcy and closure for several weeks. The service relies on voluntary contributions and billing fees for service, which has created a critical short-fall.
