City COO expects resolution to county 911 dispute
Last week, Ingham County commissioners voted 13 to 1 to demand that the city of Lansing pay the $1.1-million the county says it is owed for pension and health insurance obligations for the 34 city-employed 911 dispatchers who were transferred last year to the new Ingham County dispatch center. The county’s deadline is January 15th. If payment is not received by then, they say they’ll sue the city.
Chad Gamble, director of public service for the City of Lansing, says he's confident that an agreement can be reached that will be mutually acceptable.
