YORK, Neb. – After months of discussion between City and County officials, York’s Joint Communications Center has hit another snag.
At Thursday evening’s York City Council meeting, one of the agenda items was to approve the Interlocal Agreement on the City’s behalf to establish the communications center. The item was met with displeasure from dispatchers and officers with the City of York because of how the interlocal agreement is worded. The terminology says that current County and City dispatch employees must re-apply for the new positions, with no preference given, in which some shall be terminated.
Mary Marget works for the City of York as a dispatcher, she voiced her opinion to the council.
One council member was quoted saying “you must remember, we’re doing this to save money.”
No action was taken on the item and discussion will continue.
