Dispatch Consolidation Wins GV Council Approval

A proposal to consolidate police dispatch won support and another did not
Consolidation of police dispatch services won support at Tuesday night’s Grass Valley City Council meeting.  The consolidation of dispatch services with the Nevada County Sheriff’s Department is estimated to save the city about $100,000 a year.
Dispatchers now working for Grass Valley are expected to be able to continue their jobs with the sheriff’s department if they choose to do so.
Nevada City takes up a similar measure tonight (Wednesday, Sept. 26).
Nevada County Supervisors are expected to take up the proposal Oct. 9.

Sheriff Keith Royal appeared at the Grass Valley City Council meeting to support the consolidation. Prior to the meeting he told KNCO that the proposal would save money.

Dispatch will continue to work at the communications center next to the county jail in Nevada City. Residents calling their local department should  not notice any difference under consolidation.
