Dillsboro wary of county’s new 911 fee

Anyone getting a $5,000 bill might have questions.

For Dillsboro Town Council, the fee from Dearborn County for police dispatching raised questions of how the town will afford it year after year, but also of fairness.

Dearborn County 911 Director Charles Ashley attended the Monday, July 14, council meeting but had only a few specific answers for councilmen's questions.

The county 911 center started with 12 dispatchers in 1995, and still has the same number of dispatchers, he said.

“The call volume has about gone out the roof … so we're trying to add to our staff,” said Ashley. Dearborn County Commissioners came up with a funding plan to charge all the entities served by the dispatch center, based on call volume, he said.
