City puts 911 contract on hold

-A A +A
By Mike Gibson

Kingston City Council members deferred a decision on a 911 contract another month when questions arose as to which calls dispatchers would send to local responders.
In the wake of an ongoing budget crisis with the county service, 911 director Mike Hooks asked local municipalities last year to pony up additional cash, on a graduated annual schedule, to make up for revenue shortfalls.
Local 911 services are funded in large part by taxes on telephone landlines, and the advent of cellphones has drastically cut into that revenue.
