Uncollectable Debt Reaches $600K

Eau Claire is writing-off 600-thousand-dollars in uncollectable debt this year, with the vast majority of it being unpaid ambulance bills.

City Finance Director Jay Winzenz says the state and federal government reimburse only so much for ambulance rides. Eau Claire is left holding the bag on 550-thousand-dollars in unpaid ambulance bills from last year. Winzenz says the rest of the debt is parking tickets and property tax bills that have gone unpaid, and that a collections agency cannot collect on.
