Village saves on new dispatcher contract

By on June 7, 2013

ELBURN—Fees for dispatch services from Tri-Com Central Dispatch in St. Charles have significantly decreased, for an annual rate of $79,976, down from the previous rate of approximately $97,000.

According to Village Administrator Erin Willrett, the decrease was due to the increase in the number of communities in the area taking advantage of the services. The Village Board on Monday approved the new service contract with Tri-Com for the fiscal year 2013-14.

Tri-Com, a governmental agency formed in 1976 by Batavia, Geneva and St. Charles to provide emergency communications services to these communities, currently takes all 9-1-1 calls for the residents of Elburn and a number of other fire and police departments in the area.
