City forming its own E-911 district

BY RON HARRIS, DAILY MOUNTAIN EAGLE

Jasper will part ways with Walker County E-911 after a vote by city council members Tuesday morning.

Council members unanimously voted to have the city form its own E-911 district. The primary goal of the move, city leaders say, is to improve response time by Jasper police and firefighters.

“We’re not mad or upset with anybody, and we appreciate the good working relationship we’ve had with Walker County E-911 over the years,” Jasper Mayor Sonny Posey said following Tuesday’s meeting. “It’s just time to change.”

Posey said in addition to quicker response times for first responders, the move to form the city’s own E-911 district will mean increased revenue for the city.

“In the past, we’ve gotten what we consider a share — I won’t say a reasonable share — but that share has dwindled over time to nearly nothing,” Posey said. “The city has also not had a member on the board at E-911 in many, many years, and we just think we owe the citizens of Jasper better than that.”
