Lake Co E-911 Holdouts Float Their Own E-911 Plan

Three Lake County communities who have yet to sign on to the county's E-911 network are considering the creation of their own emergency dispatch center. On Wednesday the Schererville Town Council approved a resolution to determine if it is feasible to have their own dispatch center, together with Cedar Lake and St. John, funding it through their current tax levies. Officials in Cedar Lake could vote on the matter next week while officials in St. John say they are reviewing the options.

14 Lake County communities have signed on to an interlocal agreement toward consolidating Lake County's E-911 system, a move that's been mandated by the state.
