AMB shall have no obligation or responsibility with respect to any legacy account services rendered by CLIENT prior to the Effective Date, or accounts receivables already existing as of the Effective Date, unless a separate written agreement is entered into by the parties with respect to such pre-Effective Date services (hereafter “Legacy Claims”). 3. Term. The initial term of this Agreement shall be for three (3) years from the Effective Date (hereafter the “Initial Term”). The Initial Term may be renewed by the parties for an additional three (3) year term (hereafter the “Additional Term”) unless the Agreement is terminated as set forth herein. 4. Fees. Beginning as of the Effective Date, CLIENT shall pay AMB a fee of 4.15% per month of net collections, excluding Medicare claims, received during the Initial Term and any Additional Term (the “Base Fee”).

For Medicaid claims only, the rate shall be a flat-rate $6.00 per Medicaid claim for the duration of the contract terms.

By way of example, if CLIENT terminates this Agreement, for whatever reason, after 19 months, CLIENT shall owe and shall pay AMB the Pro Rata Charge for Equipment which shall be equal to 17/36ths of the Total Charge for Equipment, upon termination. CLIENT specifically agrees and acknowledges that it shall have no right to return the Equipment, or any portion of the Equipment, to AMB for a full or partial credit towards the Total Charge for Equipment owed by CLIENT to AMB. If CLIENT fulfills its obligations as described herein, including its obligation to pay for all Base Fees as described herein, and the Agreement is not terminated prior to the expiration of the Initial Term, CLIENT shall owe no additional amount to AMB for the Equipment 6. Payment of Fees to AMB.

CLIENT acknowledges that AMB will necessarily rely on the Demographic Information in providing the Services contemplated hereby, and that the timing and amount of reimbursements and ultimately Net Collections generated by AMB and received by CLIENT is directly related to the completeness, timeliness and accuracy of the Demographic Information and other variables, some of which are beyond the control of AMB. AMB will bill and attempt to collect CLIENT charges in a timely manner and in a manner consistent with all applicable Federal, State and Local laws and regulations and in a manner consistent with the policies and procedures of third party payers that are made known by such payers to medical practices and billing companies or otherwise known by AMB.

Any such operating policies and procedures, or amendments thereto, will, upon mutual written and signed agreement, become an integral part of this Agreement and shall be binding upon both parties. 9. Cash Flow Ramp Up. AMB acknowledges that maintaining adequate cash flow for CLIENT is an important part of the relationship between CLIENT and AMB, and AMB will use its good-faith, best efforts to maximize CLIENT’S cash flow. CLIENT acknowledges that cash flow is affected by many things, including run volume, which is out of AMB’S control. CLIENT agrees and acknowledges that AMB has explained that it will diligently begin billing, re-billing, and following up on CLIENT’S claims as of the Effective Date CLIENT further acknowledges that it understands that, unless a separate written agreement is entered into, AMB has not agreed to provide Services with respect to CLIENT’S Legacy Claims, and it is vitally important to CLIENT’S cash flow that CLIENT or some other third party continue to re-bill and follow up with respect to its Legacy Claims. CLIENT acknowledges that in order for cash flow to remain at levels comparable to that which existed preEffective Date, it is vitally important for CLIENT to continue to diligently bill, re-bill, and follow up with all Legacy Claims with the same effort, timeliness, and manpower as before the Effective Date. 10. Confidentiality. AMB agrees not to disclose to anyone other than CLIENT any information about CLIENT’s business, fee structure, internal compensation, operating practices and procedures, methods, managed care or facility contracting strategies, or similar business information that would commonly be understood to be confidential or any confidential medical information regarding CLIENT’s patients received in the course of performing the Services (CLIENT’s “Confidential Information”), except as required to bill charges, as legally required, or as otherwise provided herein.

Both parties shall, at all times, have in force a signed Confidentiality Agreement executed by each full time and part time employee, independent contractor, consultant and vendor that requires CLIENT’S Confidential Information and AMB’S Confidential Information to be maintained and iii protected as set forth herein, which said Confidentiality Agreement(s) shall survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement. Both parties shall comply with, and assist the other with compliance with applicable state or federal confidentiality requirements as to individual patient information.

The parties agree that AMB may store Demographic Information, back-up documentation, statements, explanations of benefits, payer inquiries and other information it receives in connection with the Services (“CLIENT Information”) in electronic form through optical scanning or other technologies selected by AMB and that AMB is not obligated to maintain paper copies. AMB will at all times maintain a current and complete copy of all CLIENT Information in a secure, off-site location and that no CLIENT data shall be deleted or purged unless a period of seven years has passed since the date services were provided by CLIENT or CLIENT gives written approval of such data deletion. It is specifically acknowledged that all CLIENT data is the property of CLIENT but that AMB may maintain a copy for documentation of Services and for other purposes relating to this Agreement during and after the term of this Agreement. 12. Termination. This Agreement can be terminated by CLIENT at any time with 30 days written notice for any reason. In the event this Agreement is terminated, for whatever reason, or expires, the parties agree as follows: a) AMB shall continue to perform Services, and be entitled to the Base Fees set forth herein, for a period of one hundred sixty (60) days after the effective date of termination (hereafter “Wind Down Period”) for all of CLIENT’s charges for services rendered prior to the termination date (hereafter “Wind Down Fees”). b) In the event the Agreement is terminated before the expiration of the Initial Term, CLIENT shall pay AMB for the pro rata portion of the Equipment as is due and owing under paragraph 5 herein. c) CLIENT expressly agrees to cooperate and assist AMB with its performance during the WindDown Period and will timely report, or cause to be reported, all payment received during the Wind-Down Period. d) AMB shall discontinue performing Services for CLIENT at the end of the Wind-Down Period.

However, performance of duties hereunder may be impeded by occurrences beyond the control of one or both parties. Events such as flood, earthquake, hurricane, tornado, blizzard, fire, riot, war, insurrection, or civil disturbance, strikes by common carriers, extended loss (more than 48 hours) of utilities (except for non-payment), and similar events shall excuse the affected party from v performance of services impeded by such event(s).

As part of the inducement, each to the other, to enter into this Agreement, both parties have represented that they do, and will continue to operate consistent with and fully comply with their respective Corporate Compliance Plans, to the extent that such plans have been adopted. To the extent that no such Plan has been adopted, both parties agree to the following: 1. Each party will conduct its own periodic risk assessment and advise the other party to this Agreement of any findings that may affect that other party’s compliance or performance under this Agreement. 2. Both parties agree that the other party hereto may review its Compliance Program upon request. 3. Both parties agree to conduct appropriate background checks on all employees, prospective employees, contractors, agents and vendors to assure that all services are provided by individuals who have not been excluded by any governmental authority, or should be excluded by any governmental authority. 4. Both parties agree to maintain appropriate compliance records and assure the completeness and security of said records. 5. Both parties agree to scrupulously and diligently comply with the rules and regulations related to the following areas of widely known compliance risk: a) Improper waiver of charges, deductibles and copayments; b) Up-coding, unbundling, serial reporting and other coding violations; c) Misuse of a provider number or misrepresentation of the identity of a provider of services; d) Failure to repay overpayments or failure to timely refund overpayments; e) Seeking duplicate payment for the same service and/or from the same source; f) Failure to maintain proper records of current and prior billing; g) Failure to protect the confidentiality of patient information. 6.

AMB has the duty to provide reasonable and timely notice to CLIENT of such suspension and to make reasonable and timely efforts to resolve the issue or concern leading to the suspension of claim submission. In the event that investigation is required to resolve the suspension, each party agrees to cooperate in such investigation. 9. Each party agrees to be separately responsible for their respective compliance-related legal and consulting expenses. i AMB PERFORMANCE GUARANTEE Contractor acknowledges that they have been awarded this contract by CLIENT partly as a result of making certain performance guarantees regarding the recovery of funds from the billing and processing of charges related to ambulance and emergency medical services. As such, it has been agreed upon between both CLIENT and CONTRACTOR that a guarantee be made to ensure all fee’s on behalf of CONTRACTOR are offset by a revenue increase by CONTRACTOR. Contractor agrees that CLIENT, or their representative, have previously provided to Contractor for review the financial data of the CLIENT indicating the volume and payer mix of patients, gross charges, collections and adjustments of the CLIENT for the previous 12 month period. Contractor agrees that they have reviewed these figures and believe that actual monthly cash recoveries from the gross charges of the CLIENT can be increased by utilizing the services of the Contractor and their related vendors. Specifically, based on the data provided by the CLIENT the average combined monthly net revenues, excluding hospital or facility stipends, for the CLIENT from actual work provided by the CLIENT are $77,362 on 262 average monthly ambulance patient transports. Assuming monthly runs/encounters do not decrease from the previous 12 month average of 262, Contractor hereby guarantees to CLIENT that after 180 days of the effective date of the AMB Service Agreement and for a period of six months thereafter average monthly cash recoveries will increase by a minimum of 5% or $3,868. This guarantee is contingent on the assumption of no significant changes from current CLIENT percentages of payer mix, and service type. This guarantee is also contingent on a three day remittance and payment turn around period by CLIENT to CONTRACTOR to ensure CONTRACTOR is being sent all necessary payment documents to post to patient accounts. In the event that Contractor fails to increase the monthly recoveries as indicated above Contractor agrees to reduce the contingent commission rate shown in the AMB Service Agreement by 25% for each and any period during the 6 months in which the Contractor fails to realize the above stated increase.

MEMORANDUM DATE: June 4, 20145 TO: Baker County Board of County Commissioners FROM: Ed Preston, Planning and Zoning Director RE: Verizon Blair Tower Special Use DESCRIPTION This new proposed communication tower site is located about 1300 feet west of CR 121 and 300 feet north of Bobby Sapp Road just south and west of the State Hospital. General Location BACKGROUND The applicant is requesting a special use for a new communication tower on a vacant 38.48 acre parcel. STANDARD OF REVIEW • • • • Zoning decisions are generally quasi-judicial. Standard of Review: “Competent Substantial Evidence.” Findings of Fact—Yes Ex Parte Communications—NO 2014 Aerial with 400’ radius Zoning Future Land Use 100 Year Flood Zone Context Findings The part of the Land Development Regulations relating to this application include: PART 3.06.00 WIRELESS TELECOMMUNICATION FACILITIES Sec. 3.06.01 General The provisions of this section are intended to promote the health, safety and general welfare of the citizens by regulating the siting of communications towers and to establish the necessary legal framework to encourage the use of towers which are compatible with their surroundings. Sec. 3.06.02 Purpose The Board of County Commissioners finds that the promulgation of this ordinance is warranted and necessary to accomplish the following purposes: A. To direct the location of communication towers within Baker County; B. To protect residential areas and land uses from the potential adverse impacts of communication towers; C. To minimize adverse visual and aesthetic impacts of communication towers through careful design, siting, landscape screening, and innovative aesthetic mitigation; D. To accommodate the growing demand for communication towers; E. To promote and encourage shared use and co-location of existing and new communication towers as the preferred option rather than construction of additional single-use towers; F. To consider the public health and safety of communication towers; G. To avoid or minimize potential damage to adjacent properties from tower failure through engineering and careful siting of tower structures. And Sec. 3.06.04 A. Special Use Permit Required All wireless telecommunication facilities shall constitute a special use as permitted herein. Such facilities may be permitted in any district under the criteria set forth hereafter and upon the approval of the Board of County Commissioners. This provision shall supersede the existing land development regulations which limit special use permits to certain zoning districts. B. No development permit, including building permit, shall be issued until after a public hearing is held on the application and the special use permit is approved by the Board of County Commissioners authorizing the construction of the proposed tower or other telecommunication facility. And Sec. 3.06.06 Location on Lot A communication tower may be located on a lot utilized for other principal uses and on a parcel smaller than the minimum lot size required in the zoning district. This parcel shall be considered as the tower site. The tower site, but not the entire lot, shall be subject to all of the requirements of this Section, except as specifically provided herein. Sec. 3.06.07 A. Minimum Distance of Towers from Residential Zones Regardless of the zoning district in which the communication tower is located. The minimum distance of the tower shall be not less than 200 feet from the nearest residential lot line of any residential districts or from any parcel containing a residence in an agricultural district except that in the agricultural districts the communication tower may be closer to a parcel boundary provided it remains a minimum of 400 feet from any residence existing at the time of approval. B. Minimum distances shall be measured from the center of the base of the communication tower to the lot line of the applicable residential zoning district or parcel, as the case may be. C. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this ordinance, no communication tower other than a monopole (freestanding) tower or alternative tower structure shall be located in any residential zoning district. Sec. 3.06.08 Maximum Height The minimum height of communication towers shall be: A. In all residential districts: If constructed for a single user, up to ninety (90) feet in height, and, If constructed for two or more users, up to one hundred fifty (150) feet in height. B. In all other zoning districts: If constructed for a single user, up to one hundred fifty (150) feet in height; If constructed for two users, up to two hundred fifty (250) feet in height; If constructed for three or more users, up to three hundred thirty (330) feet in height. C. A communication tower shall be considered to be constructed for more than one user if: It is constructed so as to provide sufficient excess capacity over the initial single user loading for one or more additional comparable users; and The applicant consents in writing with Baker County to permit one or more additional comparable communication providers to use the proposed tower D. where feasible and subject to reasonable terms. Measurement of communication tower height shall include antenna, base pad, and other appurtenances and shall be measured from the finished grade of the tower site. E. Application may be made to exceed the height limitation. The zoning agency shall determine if the goal and objective of promoting co-location will be served by granting a variance to exceed the maximum height and may approve such application if consistent with the goals and objectives of this section and if necessary to comply with The Telecommunications Act of 1996. Sec. 3.06.09 Minimum Yard Requirements. There are no minimum yard requirements for communication towers. Sec. 3.06.10 Illumination Communication towers shall not be artificially lighted except as may be required by Federal Aviation Administration. If lighting is required, the applicant must present Baker County with available lighting alternatives and obtain approval of the Baker County Commission so that the county is assured that the design utilized will cause the least possible disturbance to the surroundings. Sec. 3.06.11 Finished Color Communication towers not requiring FAA painting/marking shall have either a galvanized finish or painted a dull blue or gray finish. Sec. 3.06.12 Structural Design Communication towers shall be designed and constructed to ensure that the structural failure or collapse of the tower will not create a safety hazard to adjoining properties. Communication towers shall be constructed to EIA/TIA 222-F Standards or the most current equivalent standards, as published by the Electronic Industries Association, which may be amended from time to time, and all applicable county building codes. All plans for the construction of towers shall be sealed by a Florida registered professional engineer. Further, any improvements and/or additions (i.e., antenna, satellite dishes, etc.) to existing communication towers shall require submission of site plans sealed and verified by a professional engineer which demonstrates compliance with EIA/TIA 222-F Standards or most current equivalent standards in effect at the time of said improvement or addition. Said plans shall be submitted to, reviewed and approved by the building department at the time building permits are requested. A fall zone shall be provided to the extent that is required by EIA/TIA 222-F Standards or the most current equivalent standards. Sec. 3.06.13 Fencing A six foot finished masonry wall or fence, other than chain link, with not less than 85% opacity shall be required as a minimum around all communication towers located in a residential or commercial zoning district. In all other zoning districts, the fence may be any type of security fence provided that is at least six feet in height. Access to all towers shall be through a locked gate. Sec. 3.06.14 No Advertising Neither the communication tower nor the tower site shall be used for advertising purposes and shall not contain any signs for the purpose of advertising. Sec. 3.06.15 Landscaping The visual impacts of residentially or commercially located communication towers shall be mitigated through landscaping or the screening materials at the base of the tower and ancillary structures. A. The following landscaping and buffering of communication towers shall be required around the perimeter of the tower and accessory structures: A row of shade trees a minimum of ten (10) feet tall and a maximum of twenty (20) feet apart shall be planted around the perimeter of the fence; A continuous hedge at least thirty-six (36) inches high at the time of planting, capable of growing to at least forty-eight (48) inches in height within 18 months, shall be planted in front of the tree line referenced above; All required landscaping shall be of the evergreen variety; All required landscaping shall be native drought tolerant species and/or irrigated and properly maintained to ensure good health and vitality. B. Required landscaping shall be installed outside the fence or wall. C. Existing vegetation shall be preserved to the maximum extent practicable and may be credited as appropriate toward landscaping requirements. D. These standards may be waived by the Planning Director for those sides of the proposed tower that are located adjacent to undevelopable lands and lands not in public view. The proposed tower is to be constructed to 250 feet in height. The property is zoned AG 7.5. The 33.48 acre property is vacant. The Baker County setback requirement for this tower is 400 feet from the closest residence and 200 feet from the nearest residential lot line in a residential district. There is no residence within 400 feet of the proposed tower. The closest residential district is a PUD on the south side of Bobby Sapp Road, however the PUD provides for a preserved wetlands land use inside the 400 foot arc of the proposed tower, and no residential lot line is within the required 400 foot setback. The Baker County height limit for a tower designed for two users is 250’. The Board of County Commissioners will hear this on June 16, 2015. RECOMMENDATION The Baker County Planning and Zoning Department finds this proposed special use is consistent with the land development regulations and comprehensive plan and recommends that the Board of County Commissioners approve this request.
