Christian County and Shelby County are meeting together on December 9th to hold an information meeting for Shelby County Board members and members of the public to discuss merging the Christian/Shelby Joint Emergency Telephone Systems Board. The public are encouraged to attend and ask questions regarding the 9-1-1 system.
Christian County and Montgomery County are already working on merging the systems together and a discussion will take place to see what the benefits and drawbacks of adding Montgomery County would be. There would also be a discussion of the operational and financial gains and losses as well. While this is being discussed no final actions will be taken at this meeting.
The meeting will be held at the Lake Shelbyville Visitor Center at 1989 State Highway 16 in Shelbyville. Questions may be sent to Jared Rowcliffe who is the EMA coordinator at 774-1499.
