PARADISE, Calif. — The Town Council Tuesday will decide whether to set a public hearing on a proposal to allow the Fire Department to charge for medical aid calls, or scrap the controversial idea.

The council previously authorized Fire Chief Mark Haunschild to craft a fee schedule for providing medical services at traffic collisions and for home and business calls.

Fees per call would be $235, or $82 by subscription.
