MURIETTA, Calif. — Representatives from American Medical Response, which provides ambulance services to Murrieta, asked City Council members for an apology Tuesday.

They alleged misleading and "false" statements about AMR employees were made during a March 6 City Council workshop held to discuss the possibility of an annual paramedic fee for residents.

Murrieta Fire Chief Matt Shobert is recommending the optional fee to recoup costs he says are spent providing paramedic services. Shobert said the Fire Department is getting a return of about 30 percent of materials used during calls when Murrieta firefighter/paramedics arrive on scene prior to AMR.
