The City of Renville may be without an ambulance service starting Dec. 31.

According to the Renville County Register, Renville Ambulance Board Member David Grund announced earlier this month that as of Jan. 1, the Renville Ambulance Service will cease to operate. Grund, who also serves on the city council, told them they were left with no other option because they were continually facing a shortage in ambulance members.

He said it got to the point there would not be enough to cover all necessary shifts after the new year. Grund said they are assessing all their options.
