City to pay Medstar memberships


Some 63 people associated with the City of Grand Coulee will get Medstar memberships as a way for the city to say thank you to them.

Getting memberships are city staff, elected officials and volunteers.

The city council approved the measure at its last meeting, subject to getting an okay from the city’s attorney.

City clerk Carol Boyce said this week that Grand Coulee is moving forward with the plan.

The normal cost for a Medstar annual membership is $59, but under a group plan the city will get memberships for $48.

The membership program covers the mayor, city council members, city hall staff, public works staff, police department officers, reserves and chaplain, fire department and ambulance service staffs, members of the civil service commission, planning commission and library board.

Medstar provides emergency air transport to hospitals in Spokane and elsewhere.

The total membership cost to the city is $3,024. Those who already have Medstar memberships will have their memberships extended a year.
