Panel Recommends Combining All County 911 Operations In Single Center

Sangamon County should have just one 911 dispatch center to cover all communities… instead of the current system where two towns run their own call centers, in addition to the main county facility. 


That’s the recommendation of the Citizens Efficiency Commission.  Chairman Karen Hasara says the current system is wasteful, and eliminating the separate centers in Chatham and Auburn could save residents there a half-million dollars a year without diminishing 911 service. 


The recommendation is non-binding.  It’s up to officials in those communities to decide whether to pursue the idea.
