  1. Public Comment

 

Sandy Beitel (INENA) – Inquired as to whether the statewide 911 network will be used only for 911.  If other uses are allowed, those entities should pay to be on the network.  She also stated that a 911 call ends with the dispatch of the call.

 

Brian Whitaker (St. Clair County) – Inquired about closing dispatch centers.  He stated that when St. Clair previously asked for the Board’s position on consolidation, they were told that dispatch centers could not stay open.  St. Clair County is concerned that a pending consolidation plan includes keeping dispatch centers open.  The Board did not give clear direction on this issue.

 

Brent Reynolds (APCO) – Was concerned that a 911 call could be conferenced in or transferred to a dispatch center.  He stated that the Board never said a police department had to be closed.

 

 

The meeting was adjourned at 12:42 PM on a motion by Linda Zerwin and a second by Ralph Caldwell.
