The two-month struggle between SARS and Augusta County is finally over.

SARS and the county board of supervisors agreed on an addendum to their contract.

According to county officials, SARS had been in violation of a 1997 contract allowing them sovereign immunity, but preventing them from charging for services.

The rescue squad began charging last month as part of its revenue recovery program.

SARS officials say they're happy to finally have the issue resolved.

"So we've worked very diligently over the last month or two trying to adjust that contract to where it suits both the county's needs and the needs of the agency," said Donna Helmick of SARS.
