FLOYD COUNTY — Dispatchers paid out of 911 funds

Due to budgets constraints — including funding two murder trials in 2013 and the over-appropriation of rainy day funds — the commissioners agreed Tuesday night to pay six county dispatchers out of the 911 budget. But not without hesitation.

“I don’t like using 911 funds to pay salaries,” said Commissioner Chuck Freiberger. “I don’t think that is what it was intended for. I will go along with it because it is an emergency situation. I understand our budget difficulties.”

The commissioners agreed to pay the salaries for one year only out of 911 funds. Counting salaries and benefits, the cost for one year is $300,000.

Floyd County Council President Ted Heavrin said there is currently $600,000 in the 911 fund. He said when the state takes over the 911 funding beginning in January, Floyd County will receive $40,500 a month.
