Montgomery Considering Entering KenCom for 911 Services
The Aurora Beacon News reports the village may stop dispatching its own 911 calls.
The village of Montgomery is considering joining KenCom in Yorkville for its 911 services, according to a story in the Aurora Beacon News.
Montgomery police and fire are dispatched through the village’s own dispatchers. The dispatchers calls to Sugar Grove emergency services, which brings in about $200,000 annually, the Beacon reports.
However, Sugar Grove won’t be renewing that agreement, which led Police Chief Dan Meyers to study the cost of the village handling its own 911 calls.
Meyers told trustees this week that moving the calls to KenCom could save the village up to $500,000 in the coming years, the Beacon reported.
