DISCUSSION: ALLIANCE REFUSES TO ENDORSE 9-1-1. DOES IT MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE?

Led by Police Chief Scott Griffith's opposition to the consolidation of a 11 dispatch center to four to two to one dispatch centers over the next few years, Alliance City Council (as reported by the Alliance Review) refused to get on board a Stark County Commissioner Todd Bosley plan to reform the county's 9-1-1 system at a council meeting held this past Tuesday.

The STARK COUNTY POLITICAL REPORT (The Report) thinks council's action is irrelevent and will not stop the Bosley plan.

Certainly there are questions about the process and mechanics of making the transition, but The Report believes the commissioners will impose the project 1/4% increase in the county sales/use tax on December 29th.

Alliance needs to get on board with this ASAP. If they are concerned with getting their own dispatchers into one of these centers the longer they wait the less of a chance they will have. Communities are signing up either with the RED or the Nim center’s by the day for dispatching. This going to happen and Alliance’s stubbornness will only hurt their own Employees and Citizens.
