Union County, SD residents react to 911 call center vote

Posted:

UNION COUNTY, South Dakota (KTIV) - As far as the Union County voter's decision goes on the issue of a tax opt-out to fund the county's 911 dispatch center, Sheriff Limoges says he's optimistic he'll have the support of the community.

Most folks in Union County that spoke with KTIV Tuesday said they were in favor of keeping the call center right where it's at.

But, others said they'll need to do some research before deciding for sure.

"I need more information. It'd be nice if it'd keep jobs in Union County, I'm all for that," Michael Stanton, McCook Lake, South Dakota said.

Others say they have no question in their mind whether or not the county should make tax changes to fund the call center.

"One of my nephews was in an accident, and they used the 911 to come and help rescue him. I think it's a well-worth project," Craig Nearman, Elk Point, SD said.

Again, the issue of the tax opt-out will be on the ballot for Union County voters on June third of this year.
