Local municipalities are seeking the county’s help. Monday night, Jacksboro Mayor Jack Cannon and Caryville Mayor Chris Stanley asked the Campbell County Commission to pay for dispatch fees.
“This past year we got a letter telling us it was going to cost us $57,000 for a 911 dispatcher,” Cannon said.
This amount has since been reduced to $44,000, Cannon said.
“We feel, that it being a county service, the county should pick up the tab,” Cannon said.
