    BERLIN — The high-stakes battle for Berlin’s ambulance business remains unresolved after the Select Board refused to declare a winner this week and took the matter under advisement for the second time in less than a month.

    After listening to brief presentations from two of the bidders and quizzing the third at length, board members agreed they weren’t ready to make a decision that basically boils down to a choice between maintaining business as usual and fueling the birth of a brand new ambulance service.

    “I’d certainly like to digest the information for awhile,” Selectman Pete Kelley said after listening to presentations from the town’s current ambulance provider, its volunteer fire department, and the man behind an intriguing no-cost offer that dominated discussion Monday night.

    Kelley didn’t get any argument from the rest of the board, as members unanimously agreed to table action on the matter until their April 1 meeting. A decision is expected at that time.
