    Wow this sounds constructive. I bet there will be very little honoring and a bunch of “dixie” supporters feeling sorry for one another.

    Look , it sounds like a party for a company’s downfall and closing. YES , the employees most likely got treated unfair . This is a private company , that didn’t keep up with the times of technology , and maybe didn’t see that by not improving their staff who work in the field would put the odds against them. Now the provider we all have currently does have a better trained staff. If the current provider didn’t …. maybe they wouldn’t be here. Now here is something to think about.. If the current provider didnt want to open up down here in Washington Co. ( St.George )., it would be just a matter of time that another provider most likely from out of state could have been awarded the contract . There have been two companies that HAVE been scouting So utah for some time. When the time is right , I’m sure they will look at So. Utah more seriously . We all have been treated by some Real GREAT Employees of the company that closed their doors VOLUNTARY ! Any good business owner wouldn’t let it happen !! and wouldn’t leave the blinders on … . Back when there were all of the public comment periods… The previous provider company , you would think ….would make sweeping changes and IMPROVE their operation OVERNIGHT !
    When Wal-mart moved in , and the hometown mercantile store of 35+ years was forced to closed … was there a big hoopla ? maybe. As times change, and our quality of life improves , so does services both Public and Private. This change we all are seeing now is something that will benefit all. Just give it a chance. When the State of Utah annouced that the St. George Blvd was going to go thru a major reconstruction , there was outrage… a sign of what is unknown causes people to dream up some real stupid stories or comments.
    As for the outlying communities making claim to the current provider moving in to their community. It is just a private business attempting to genarate more business for themselves. Older communities need to understand … NON- Medical transport should be handled by the Private sector. The only reason the Public sector has this … is because it is a CASH COW for older small communites and counties. If a private provider would want to go after this type of service , they should be able to , without being run out of town before any service is provided.
