A local ambulance service has expressed interest in providing coverage to the Dierks area. Dierks Mayor Terry Mounts says he has talked with some representatives interested in housing the service there in Dierks and they are currently looking for a location. Howard County Judge Kevin Smith has received a contract to consider for the service, which is being reviewed by the county attorney. Mayor Mounts says it would be a great thing to have a full time ambulance service in Dierks and to also serve all of the northern Howard County area. A start date has not been set and the county quorum court and Dierks City Council will also still need to give their approval.
