The Lockport Common Council adopted a budget that included a big hike in ambulance fees in November, and on Wednesday the group worked through the logistics of the extra costs ... Some fees will jump dramatically, like those for dead-on-arrival calls ... Currently, those calls cost a total of $210, but the fee will jump to $400 under the new plan ... Advanced life support calls will also jump $200 per call ... Ambulance fees are the city's fourth largest source of income, behind property tax, sales tax and state aid ... The city expects to collect close to $600,000 in ambulance revenue in 2012
