SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - An administrative hearing judge has ruled that the process used by Sioux Falls officials to award a contract for an ambulance service provider is “fair and equitable.”

The ruling announced Monday allows the city to continue contract negotiations with Paramadics Plus, the provider the city chose in November over three others.

Med-Star Ambulance Service was among the bidding companies and it appealed the city’s decision citing an unfair bidding process.

Sioux Falls Public Health Director Jill Franken says the judge’s ruling “recognizes the objective processes used by the city.”

City council members will have to approve the contract with Paramedics Plus.

The contract with the city’s current ambulance service provider expires in May.
