Three Municipalities Could Go to Court Over KenCom

Plano's leaders have signed off on seeking a temporary restraining order over financing for the shared emergency dispatch service, The Beacon-News reports.

Three Kendall County communities could file a lawsuit next week seeking to prevent the KenCom Executive Board from removing them from the emergency dispatch service, according to a The Beacon-News article.

Plano's leaders were the first to agree to seek a temporary restraining order preventing KenCom from kicking the three municipalities out if they don't sign a new cost-sharing agreement by July 28, The Beacon-News reports. The KenCom Executive Board has threatened to cut off dispatch service to those communities on Dec. 1 if they miss that deadline, The Beacon-News reports.

Drop KenCom and sue to have the 911 fees collected by the phone carriers sent to fund the new TriCom operations. Batavia, Geneva, St. Charles formed http://www.tri-com911.org/ to do it, why can't we?
