Woonsocket may have to wait for dispatch savings

January 24, 2012

WOONSOCKET — The city may have to wait a bit longer for any savings to materialize out of its plans to consolidate emergency dispatch services at the police station.
Mayor Leo T. Fontaine told members of the City Council during a work session in the Harris Hall conference room that the consolidation plan may have to be done in stages due to difficulties that have cropped up in moving all dispatching equipment to a single location.
The change to a dispatch system staffed by civilian employees at the police station had been included as a cost savings measure in the city's current budget.
