Law enforcement thanks Cass County for support

CASSOPOLIS, MI. --  More than 4,700 voters showed up on Tuesday, and voted yes to renew the millage that funds 40% of the Cass County 9-1-1 Dispatch Center.

ABC57 News reported how crucial the funds are to offset the intense costs for a 24/7 service. 

Law enforcement is grateful.

"The voters and citizens of Cass County overwhelmingly supported the millage for the 911 center and that's very important for us first responders," says Chief Doug Westrick, from the Ontwa-Edwardsburg Police Department. "All of the 911 calls going through this dispatch center."

The community stood behind law enforcement to make this happen.

"Percentage wise, 75-25, so yeah we're happy to see the support," adds Westrick. 

The renewed millage is small, only 20 cents per $1,000, begins December 1, 2018 and goes through December 1, 2022.
