More research for millage renewal

St. Joseph County’s Board of Commissioners has tabled a matter regarding a public hearing on a millage renewal in support of the E-911 Central Dispatch operation.

Commissioners during Tuesday’s meeting agreed that further research into the agency’s long-term needs and projected expenses should be evaluated before authorizing a public hearing on the potential millage request. E911 director Jon Uribe was instructed to look at capital items and expenses over the next six years and let commissioners know an appropriate course of action.

During their executive committee meeting last week, commissioners discussed additional matters, including reducing the millage amount to be requested. They also considered including jail records management software into the ballot language.

A decision must be made by May 15 in order for a potential millage request to appear before voters in August.
