City of Canyon Lake to hold Public Hearing on Emergency Medical Services Program

The Canyon Lake City Council will be conducting a public hearing at the regularly scheduled meeting on Wednesday, June 1, at 6:30 p.m. in the Council Chamber at City Hall to consider the report prepared by the city clerk describing the EMS Program fees and EMS fees to be placed on the tax rolls for real property for each subscriber to the EMS Program for the upcoming fiscal year (July 1, 2022, through June 30, 2023).

The report will also describe the real property for each person who has declined to participate in the EMS Program and for which delinquent EMS fees existed after April 1. The report will contain both prospective EMS Program fees and delinquent EMS fees and charges which may be placed on the tax rolls for residential and non-residential property.

Participation in the EMS Program is voluntary. The EMS subscription fee and EMS service fee are unchanged from the previous year. All persons subscribing for the current fiscal year will continue to be subscribed for the upcoming fiscal year unless the subscriber terminates their subscription by providing written notice to the city clerk by June 1.

For residents currently enrolled in the program, the annual service fee of $192 will continue to be collected on the property tax roll in the same manner as other city services, such as residential solid waste collection charges.

For residential households, the subscription to the EMS Program covers all members, guests, and invitees of the subscriber’s household, or in the case of businesses, the business owner, employees, customers, guests, and invitees of the subscribing business, regardless of the location where the emergency medical services are rendered within the city.

The EMS Subscription Program protects members from any out-of-pocket expenses related to medical treatment provided by the Canyon Lake Fire Department. It does not cover ambulance transportation cost, as this is billed by a private company ambulance provider separate from the City of Canyon Lake.

Residents who opted out of the EMS Program will not be charged the annual fee; however, if emergency medical services are provided by the Canyon Lake Fire Department or by any other first responder agency, the resident will receive an invoice from the city for $1,483 each time services are rendered.

All persons who have declined to participate, or have previously terminated their subscriptions, will not be subscribed unless they provide written notice to the city clerk of their desire to participate in the EMS program. Notices should be sent to the city clerk prior to June 1.
