Peabody City Council held a brief meeting Monday evening, which opened with Mayor Larry Larsen introducing the council to four of five new trainees for Peabody’s ambulance service.
Peabody Community Foundation president Nelson Patton presented the city with a replica check for $3,510 from PCF to pay for the EMT training.
The new volunteers are Lindsay Hutchison, Lucas Larsen, Kim McCleary, Angela Straub, and Jylle Wilson.
