Glen Carbon trustees voted at their board meeting Tuesday to officially approve an intergovernmental agreement involving the consolidation of police and emergency dispatch services between the villages of Glen Carbon and Maryville

The agreement has been under review for several weeks after first being proposed by Maryville in the interests of reducing costs. It has been endorsed by the Glen Carbon Public Safety Committee and Glen Carbon Police Chief David Bradford.

Enactment of the agreement is subject to approval by the village of Maryville.

Under the agreement, all dispatching services would be handled by Glen Carbon, which would receive payment of $65,000 in the first year. Fees would be re-evaluated annually based upon calls for service, with a 3 percent cap on increases, Bradford said.

Maryville Fire to move to Starcom21

Flaugher, speaking at the village board meeting on May 5, said the money will go toward equipment purchases and changeover to the Starcom digital radio system.

Madison County, the Illinois State Police and some other communities have already switched over to the new system.

Other grant recipients such as Collinsville and Troy are also planning to purchase new radio equipment.
